Peel 4-H Info

Welcome to Peel 4-H Online!

Welcome to the Peel 4-H website. We hope you enjoy your visit and continue to use this website as a means of gathering information on available clubs, upcoming meetings and communications. Please continue to check back regularly for updates.

What is 4-H?

4-H is an organization of leaders building leaders. Over 6000 youth 9-21 years of age, and a grass roots network of 1800 trained, screened 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, camps and conferences have a successful 96 year history in developing competence, confidence, connection, character and caring within rural and urban youth.

Through 4-H, youth are encouraged to develop self-confidence, a sense of responsibility, as well as learn useful skills in communications, leadership, problem solving and goal setting. These skills are achieved by participating in one or more of the 60 projects offered by the 4-H program with our officially screened leaders.
