Quebec 4-H

Leadership for tomorrow through learning today

Clubs

Clubs

The 4-H Club, formed by members and leaders, is the cornerstone of the program, electing an executive, meeting regularly and enjoying community activities. 4-H clubs come together for fun and interesting projects, enjoy social activities and adventure, contribute service to their communities and more. Clubs hold meetings lead by the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer and Reporter; all youth members elected by youth members.

Club meeting times and frequencies vary; many clubs meet once per month with occasional supplementary activities. Members are expected to participate in the club Achievement Day. Community service projects are an important part of club activities and some clubs have fundraising events.

Club meetings take place at many different venues: community centres, churches, farms, and private homes. Each club is unique, and meeting locations are determined by the club leaders and members.

Club sizes vary but should be made up of at least four members and two screened adult volunteer leaders.

Quebec 4-H has more than a dozen clubs in various regions in the province and is currently working to develop new clubs on the Lower North Shore.

 

 

If there is no 4-H club located in your area, we’d love to help you start one!

A 4-H Club can be started in any community where there are a group of boys and girls 6-25 years of age who wish to become members, and parents or adults who wish to assist in a leadership capacity.

Contact office@quebec4-h.com or telephone 514-398-8738.

We will discuss the details of the 4-H program with you, determine the extent of interest, local leadership potential, and community needs of the youth, and answer any questions you may have.

A meeting date would then be set when prospective members and their parents and other interested persons in the community could meet with a 4-H representative. At this time, we would outline the 4-H program, display project material available, learn what the interests of the members would be in 4-H, and learn from the adults present how much community support a 4-H club would receive.
