4-H
WHAT WE DO
The PEI 4-Hís core values are to provide opportunities for young Islanders ages 6-21 to form community-based, member-driven clubs in order to pursue skills-based projects of their own choosing. Each year, clubs achieve success through completion of mandatory components including: member projects, communications, community service and agriculture awareness, through direct participation and support from family members and volunteer leaders. In doing so, members develop the necessary tools for positive mental, physical and social health.
