Description & Services
Description of service(s) 4-H in New Brunswick is a rural, community based organization, which develops life skills such as citizenship, cooperation, responsibility, independence, entrepreneurship, leadership, teaching of proper environmental practices and financial management through achievement in project and program work for young people between the ages of 6 and 21.  
 
The program is organized into local 4-H Clubs, 4-H District Councils and the Provincial 4-H Council. In the 2017-2018 year we have a total of 5 districts, 24 clubs, 567 members and 161 adult volunteer leaders in New Brunswick. 
 
Today we offer a number of different projects for members to participate in. Our top livestock project is light horse with dairy and beef following closely behind. Great Outdoors is the top life skills project followed by crafts and foods.
