Latest News & Events
4-H Alberta celebrates its traditions and future leaders at the 2023 Fall Senior Symposium. Vanessa Hadwin shines as the 2024 Premier’s Award Recipient, and nine new Ambassadors step into the spotlight. Discover the stories of these dedicated members and the enduring impact of the 4-H program.
Today 4-H Alberta is pleased to announce that it has received a $50,000 sponsorship from Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) and a group of local Alberta Co-ops in support of our organization and the invaluable programming that we bring to young people each year.
We Believe in Strong Families
Parent interest and cooperation is a major factor in determining the child’s attitude towards club activities. The parents/ families of these 4-H members play a large role in the success of the club.
Alberta 4-H Centre
The Alberta 4-H Centre sits on the land of Battle Lake. The lakes name is a translation from Cree and refers to frequent conflicts between the Blackfoot and Cree in the region near the Battle River.
4-H is such a worthwhile program. By offering 4-H within the school day, it becomes accessible to so many more youth, especially those at risk whose parents or guardians may not be able to pay the fees or get them to extracurricular 4-H clubs. The school 4-H program also allows students who struggle academically the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment. Through the variety of project options available, the 4-H program ensures all students are engaged and learning.
School Board Trustee
I was too young to be in our school 4-H club when it first started but I got to see my sister in it. I could not wait to be able to try the projects and be in Achievement Day when I was old enough. Now I am involved and it is great, we actually get options at our school now. I hope we always have the school 4-H program.
When the 4-H program was proposed as a possible option in our school, I was very excited that my children would have the opportunity to partake in such a leadership program. I was already familiar with 4-H having been a former member and Ambassador in Manitoba and I did not have any hesitations whatsoever.
We know that schools can offer a lot of options to students but the 4-H program offers practical skills, a leadership building role, and communication training all of which enhance the school experience and help prepare students for life after school. I would highly recommend this program to any schools and families.
