Leader Guide  | Individual Sections – A reference manual for 4-H Leaders.

Club Analysis Tool – Each 4-H Club is unique. This uniqueness is one of the things that makes 4-H so fantastic. Clubs may choose to focus on different program aspects of 4-H, depending upon the expectations and needs of the families in their club. Clubs are free to choose which 4-H program areas they wish to focus on. Some clubs choose to be very project focused, so they spend a great deal of time improving upon the project skills of their members. Some clubs plan many club activities for their members and families to participate in and others plan fewer events. Other clubs encourage their members to participate in many opportunities outside of their club. Their members attend many district, regional and provincial activities. All of these scenarios are right if they fit the needs and expectations of the members and families in the club.
Using This Tool: • Become a more self-aware club • Help with goal setting and program planning • Ensure that your club has a common understanding of what type of club they are • Give Key Leaders will have a better picture of the club • Inform potential members and families what type of club you are

For Alberta’s Educators in 4-H Communities If you have 4-H members in your school, or if a 4-H member has approached you about this off campus credit program, we want to help you design a fit that works for your school and the 4-H club in your community.

High school students should contact their school’s off-campus education coordinator or career councillor directly to indicate their interest in taking the Green Certificate Program, and should read the Green Certificate Program guidelines (PDF, 59 KB). Participants must be at least 15 years of age and in at least Grade 10 to apply.

If you are in 4-H, you may want to inform your leader that you are enrolled in Green Certificate so they can register you for the Green Certificate 4-H Project in the fall. Green Certificate Program
