This project has been designed for the “go-getters”, the enthusiastic 4-H participants across Ontario who want to make a difference. The difference may be in seeing a need or a problem and starting a new business venture. It may be about beginning a new service or event in the community. It may be about being a better employee or student. Go-getters carry an entrepreneurial spirit. This project begins by looking at successful Canadian entrepreneurs and innovators and the characteristics and skills they possess. The project then challenges 4-H member how to better develop what it takes to make a difference. The development of this project resource has been made possible through the support of funding provided by the Grand River Agricultural Society.
