Celebrating a Century of 4-H in Ontario
by 4-H Ontario

This book celebrates a century of 4-H in Ontario through stories of members and families from across rural Ontario who have been involved in the 4-H program. Part 1 of the book was originally published in 1995 on the 80th anniversary of 4-H in Ontario and covers its early beginnings and the growth of the 4-H program at the provincial level and in each county and district of the province. Part 2 covers the last 20 years and the story of 4-H Ontario's growth to become an independent organization and the impact of the 4-H program on families who have been involved in 4-H through several generations. The book showcases how 4-H has kept up with the times to provide diverse programs and a continuum of excellence to inspire youth and give them hands-on experience to develop transferable skills for their future. Some 40 photos are included to help depict the 4-H story over the last century.

4-H is a worldwide grassroots youth organization based on a "learn to do by doing" philosophy. In Ontario, a non-profit organization, the Ontario 4-H Council, is responsible for the development and delivery of the 4-H program. 4-H members belong to clubs in their local community and complete individual projects with the guidance of volunteer adult leaders. 4-H activities and clubs are structured to develop leadership skills including public speaking, communication, decision making, parliamentary procedure, meeting management and networking, while also educating members about the project subject matter. 4-H works to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all youth. The 4-H approach to learning, development of life skills and leadership, and a focus on community involvement, makes the 4-H program unique.
