4-H Saskatchewan in the City – Information Nights in June 2016

4-H is one of Canada’s largest and longest running organizations for youth! Do you like learning new things? Do you like having fun? Do you like making friends? Then 4-H is for you!

With a focus on fun and learning, 4-H provides opportunities, which will develop the skills needed in an ever-changing future. We take pride and ownership in being an organization based on our pledge, our values and the belief that the 4-H experience has a positive impact on individuals, families, communities and our country.

Although the 4-H program has its roots in rural Saskatchewan, 4-H Saskatchewan serves all youth throughout the province who are 6 to 25 years of age and of all racial, cultural, economic and social backgrounds. 4-H also relies on parental and leader involvement, making it a program for the whole family to participate in.

There are several information nights being held in June to learn more about 4-H Saskatchewan in the City. These information nights are to provide Saskatoon residents with the opportunity to learn more about what 4-H has to offer and how to become involved in 4-H as either a member or leader.

The following dates, location, and time are when the information nights are being held:
June 13 – Holy Cross High School – 7-8 p.m.
June 14 – B.J.M. High School – 7-8 p.m.
June 15 – St. Joseph High School – 7-8 p.m.
June 16 – E.D. Feehan High School – 7-8 p.m.

4-H Saskatchewan has given young people with a dream or interest (anything from photography to community gardens) the opportunity to sit down with someone who can show them how to do it. It is a time-tested learning process we call “learn to do by doing.”

The list of projects 4-H has to offer is extensive. Here are some examples of the projects offered to our 4-H members currently:
– Archery
– Astronomy
– Bicycling
– Canine
– Car Care
– Crafts
– Foods (Baking, Cake Decorating, International Cuisine)
– Gardening
– Genealogy
– Horseless Horse
– Jewelry Making
– Outdoor Living
– Photography (Digital Photo Editing, Digital Video)
– Scrapbooking
– Small Engines
– Small Pets
– Sewing
– Welding
– Woodworking
– Youth Leadership
