North Simcoe 4-H is an organization of leaders building leaders.  Youth ages 9-21 and a grass roots network of volunteers pledge their Head, Heart, Hands and Health as members of community based clubs.  With projects encompassing agriculture, food, health and the environment, 4-H Ontario's "Learn to do by Doing" clubs have a long history in our association.  We deliver quality, innovative and sustainable leadership and life skills programs for youth and volunteeers, which will benefit the citizens and communities in which they live.
