A good community changes and evolves over time, usually with the help of its residents. If there’s something in your community you’d like to support, build or change, this is the place to start!

You’ll explore the world of giving back, learn how to identify social issues that concern you and design action plans to address them.

In this project, you’ll:

  • Experience social change first hand
  • Discover how you personally can make a difference
  • Share your ideas and inspirations to help those in need
  • Address social issues and start a new community project

You also agree to give credit to the original creators. Your provincial or national 4-H organization may have restrictions on the types of 4-H projects or activities which can be completed in your area.
