Self Determined - Do Your Own Thing

Self Determined - Do Your Own Thing

If you're a 4-H member with a great project idea of your own consider "doing your own thing". Use the "Do Your Own Thing Project Guide" to describe your project, set goals, and record your activities.

Self-Determined projects may be repeated if new areas of interest, learning experiences, and leadership/citizenship activities are selected. Don't forget, a completed guide is required for your self-determined project!

Not sure what topic to explore? You can get some great ideas by reviewing the list below.

Create-A-Project (Leader Directed)


Sometimes, the 4-H projects offered by the PEI 4-H program do not take into account the special skills and interests of our volunteer leaders.

Create-a-Project or (known as Locally Submitted Projects in Ontario), is for club volunteers to outline a project/skill they would like to share with the members. This four page form is to be reviewed, filled out, and submitted to your 4-H Specialist BEFORE BEGINNING YOUR PROJECT WORK.

Create-a-Project Guide

Examples of locally led projects in the past have included:

  • Bee Keeping
  • Maple Syrup
  • Basket weaving
  • etc

Create-a-Projects are leader led, and may be taken by member of any age accepted by the leader (there are no provincial restrictions).
