2013 Champion Message


On behalf of the Ontario 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees and Ontario 4-H Council Board of Directors, we are writing to share our conviction that as we approach our 100th anniversary year in 2015, we are growing ever stronger. 4-H Ontario is a grassroots organization of leaders building leaders. Our volunteers lead the youth in our clubs, projects, camps and conferences to become the next generation of leaders. Participants and volunteers alike “Learn To Do By Doing”. Since being founded in 1915 we have helped countless 4-H members do good for their own well-being, as well as that of their community, country, and beyond.
