Update from 4-H Canada: Oct. 2021
The 4-H Canada Club to Club Exchange program is on an indefinite hiatus until further notice. This decision was not one that we have made lightly and is done so with both the safety and health of 4-H youth members as our top priority.
We appreciate the interest in this program, and know there are many parents and members interested in participating. We hope to be able to resume programs and opportunities in-person in the foreseeable future but as of right now cannot say when that may be.
For further information or any questions you may have please reach out to 4-H Canada by visiting: https://4-h-canada.ca/clubtoclub
4-H clubs are brought together from across the country. Youth make connections with their peers and learn more about their communities, provinces, country and the 4-H movement.
