4-H is celebrating Show Your 4-H Colours this November 3, as part of 4-H Month, with youth members, volunteer leaders, alumni, and supporters showing their pride in being part of this 108-year-old community.
Today's 4-H program includes many exciting projects
and gives urban and rural youth and adults life-long skills such as
co-operation, leadership, critical thinking, decision making,
organization, public speaking, and community service.
Welcome 4-H Clubs
4-H General Leaders and Club Registrars, here is everything you need to register your club for the new 4-H year. Use this checklist and the forms to prepare for your re-organization in the new 4-H Year. Share them with 4-H club families and new members or volunteers who want to be a part of 4-H Alberta. Registration opens October 1.
If you are re-registering a club, the club & participant (youth & adult) information, will automatically move forward from the most recent previous registration.
We are so excited that you are joining 4-H this year! You will “Learn to Do by Doing” with friends, supported by some of the caring adults in your community.
Adult volunteers are vitally important to the success of 4-H Alberta. There is great benefit to having them registered for communication & opportunity purposes.

Latest News & Events
4-H Alberta is proud to announce the continuation of its longstanding partnership with ATB Financial, a strong and passionate 4-H Alberta Emerald Clover sponsor. 4-H Alberta is also thrilled to confirm the growth of the ATB Financial Confidence Workshops, based on ATB’s Building Financial Confidence Program.
4-H Alberta always follows AHS guidelines. Currently, 4-H has obtained two exemptions from AHS to support our members and community. The first is the inclusion into the “Youth and collegiate sport and recreation activities” exemption group. The second is the AHS Exemption Order 12-2021 and 14-2021 for 4-H Achievement Day events.
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.
