Welcome to the Northumberland 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 news and updates.

What is 4-H?

4-H is an organization of leaders building leaders. Over 6000 youth 9-21 years of age, and a grassroots 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 had a successful 100-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.
