COVID-19 Updates - 4-H Ontario is committed to following the direction of public health Ontario. Read more about recommendations and requirements here.

Why does each Association have their own Board of Directors?

Each Association has their own Board of Directors to administer the 4-H Ontario program locally. This ensures that volunteers have a strong influence and can be active in their local program. However, all Associations fall under the “umbrella” of 4-H Ontario.

A 4-H volunteer from the local Association Board of Directors will fill the role of “Association Representative” and represent their local Association within matters of the Ontario 4-H Council. The Association Representative can also step forward to be part of the Ontario 4-H Council Board of Directors through an election. The Ontario 4-H Council works with 4-H Ontario’s Executive Director to develop the organization’s vision. The Executive Director then guides the 4-H Ontario staff to carry out this vision. This governance model allows the organization to be run by 4-H volunteers. No Association or Regional Board can have policies or procedures in place that contradict those set by the Ontario 4-H Council.
