4-H Canada Launches Global Online Resource-Sharing Community

(Posted July 14, 2017)

4-H LEARNS (Learn, Educate, Access Resources, Network, Support) is now live for volunteer leaders and 4-H professionals around the world!

At the Global 4-H Network Summit this past July 11, 2017, 4-H Canada launched 4-H LEARNS, an online resource-sharing community open to all 4-H volunteer leaders, ambassadors and professionals over the age of 18.

4-H volunteers can easily find and select favourite resources relevant to their needs such as webinars, training materials, club-related project resources, presentations, fundraising tips and more. Over seven million 4-H members will benefit from this easy-to-access online hub available at your fingertips.

Through 4-H LEARNS’ discussion groups, leaders can connect with their global peers to share ideas, brainstorm and ask questions to a knowledgeable network eager to support one another.

Leaders will eventually also find e-learning events on different 4-H topics and be able to use this platform to communicate upcoming events within the 4-H community.

Worldwide, 4-H’ers are learning to implement their own ideas, from start to finish, through club projects and leadership opportunities where they draw lessons from their mistakes and take the first important steps to personal success. 4-H LEARNS will strengthen this world class positive youth development programming with accessible networks and downloadable global resources.

We’re building generations of leaders who will change the world in ways we can’t imagine, and our movement depends on us supporting every single one of them. Help us better guide today’s youth to learn in a safe, fun and inclusive environment by signing up for #4HLEARNS at www.4-h-learns.org and start sharing, browsing and adding to this new global resource today!



4-H Ontario is pleased to be able to provide project resource reference manuals for use by volunteers in clubs. 4-H Ontario screens and trains volunteers to equip them with the tools to serve as positive role models for youth. With so many topics to choose from, 4-H volunteers are trusted to use these resources to provide safe and quality programming while using their judgement to assess the appropriateness of activities for their particular group of youth. By downloading any 4-H resource, you agree to use it for 4-H purposes and give credit to the original creators. Your provincial 4-H organization may have restrictions on the types of 4-H projects or activities which can be completed in your region. Before using a resource on 4-H LEARNS, you are required to verify it is an eligible project and meets the requirements of your local 4-H organization.
Prior to downloading out of province resources to use in Ontario, please check with 4-H Ontario's Coordinator, Programming & Resources, Elizabeth Johnston at
