|Information||The purpose of the 4-H program is to prepare girls and boys for their future as adult citizens. 4-H stands for head, heart, hands and health. The 4-H pledge describes the significance of the four H’s:
My HEAD to clearer thinking,
My HEART to greater loyalty,
My HANDS to larger service,
My HEALTH to better living,
For my Club, my Community, my Country and my World."
The philosophy of the 4-H program is explained by the 4-H motto: Learn to do by Doing.
As a Nova Scotia 4-H’er, members can have the feeling of accomplishment that comes from trying and succeeding at something new – whether it’s fixing a small engine, knitting a sweater, training an animal, or presenting a speech or demonstration to an audience. 4-H offers all kinds of opportunities for 4-H members. Opportunities include various provincial and regional programs that members can attend to visit new places and make new friends! Senior 4-H members can also apply for scholarships and earn a personal development credit for Grade 10.
