PEAC’s Mission

  • To promote and enhance the 4-H Equine projects in Alberta

What is PEAC?

  • PEAC is a voluntary advisory committee comprised of individuals who collectively wish to share in the responsibility of developing a comprehensive communication system regarding 4-H equine projects in Alberta. PEAC advocates the concept of 4-H learning techniques and believes that learning, networking, communicating through a provincial network, improves the quality of life of the individual 4-H member and their leaders and the club.
  • PEAC serves as an advisory body to the Alberta 4-H Council and the 4-H Branch of Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development. Polices, guidelines and project specific rules and regulations for the 4-H equine projects are established through PEAC and presented to the Alberta 4-H Council for final approval.
