4-H Transition


Enhancing Excellence for 4-H in Alberta

Passion for Alberta’s premier youth organization has fueled the creation of a bold new blueprint for the future of the 4-H movement in the province.

After extensive consultations throughout Alberta, the three partners responsible for 4-H (the 4-H Council, 4-H Foundation and Agriculture and Forestry) have announced a realigned organizational structure to be known as 4-H Alberta.

  4-H Alberta - Transition

Over 400 people connected with 4-H – volunteer leaders, members, alumni and community members, south to north - took part in an thorough engagement process to share their views on how to make 4-H more efficient and even more relevant for today’s youth and the hundreds of volunteers involved in this highly respected leadership program.
