4-H Canada Program

 

4-H Section

The primary purpose of the 4-H program is the personal development of youth in rural Ontario.

The program is co-ordinated through the Ontario 4-H Council and the Peel 4-H Association. However, the goals of the 4-H program are only achieved through the dedicated efforts of local volunteer leaders. The Peel 4-H Program wishes to thank the Albion & Bolton Agricultural Society for sponsoring the Bolton Junior Dairy Calf Club, Bolton Senior Dairy Calf Club, and Peel Lifeskills Clubs, who hold their achievement program and display exhibits at the Fair.

Peel 4-H Ambassador Competition

The Ambassador Competition is open to all Peel County 4-H members and must be at least 15 years of age as of January 1, 2017. The applicant must have competed in two 4-H projects during the current year. Former Ambassadors are not eligible.
