Opportunities Everywhere

4-H opportunities pop-up everywhere, often because of dedicated Volunteers, passionate sponsors and 4-H supporters. Some of the fantastic opportunities 4-H has to offer are featured in this e-newsletter. Take a look, celebrate the accomplishments of 2011, and look forward to the 4-H opportunities 2012 has in store.

Grenville Mutual Insurance Scholarship

Grenville Mutual Insurance, a strong 4-H supporter, gives even more to local Region 2 4-H Members with the Grenville Mutual Insurance 4-H Scholarship. One scholarship of $1,500 was awarded to Kelly Ross, a Russell 4-H Member, for her short essay answering “What are your ideas for the future of 4-H and how would you implement your vision?” More about Kelly and Grenville Mutual's contributions to 4-H >

MCYS & 4-H
4-H Ontario partnered with the John Howard Society of the Niagara region to integrate “a taste of 4-H” into the Summer Jobs For Youth (SJFY) programming they provided this past summer. The natural link between 4-H and the Ministry of Children and Youth Services program was an opportunity to provide follow-through support for the youth as they leave SJFY programming. More >
