Careers on the Grow

Do you have a dream for a greener, healthier, more sustainable world? Do you want to build your technical and employable skill set, while gaining meaningful work experience and growing your professional network?

Careers on the Grow is your ticket to all that and more! The 4-H Canada Careers on the Grow program features a series of creative partnerships between 4-H Canada, businesses and organizations across Canada/North America, who are dedicated to improving the health of communities and the people who live in them.

Through this program, 4-H youth can take advantage of a variety of hands-on learning opportunities within companies, on farms, and in rural and urban communities across the country. Partner organizations and industry leaders will work closely with 4-H Canada to develop a range of high quality mentorship placements within their facilities. 4-H members will “learn to do by doing” through these placements, customized to meet the needs of the individual 4-H member and the placement partner.
