Support Careers on the Grow

4-H Canada’s Careers on the Grow is a career development program where youth can explore career paths, apply skills and gain hands-on work experience.

How is 4-H preparing youth for careers?

Employers tell us regularly they look for 4-H on resumes when they are hiring. Why is this?

4-H provides youth with the skills employers are seeking. Through our proven positive youth development model, 4-H youth are developing six key assets:

  • Skill mastery
  • Leadership development
  • Sense of purpose
  • Responsibility
  • Planning and decision making
  • Positive values

How can you be involved?

Thanks to our generous partners, opportunities to participate in our careers programming are regularly expanding.

We are looking for the following:

  • Organizations to host a 4-H summer intern for 4 to 8 weeks at your workplace
  • Organizations interested in hiring 4-H’ers to participate in our Virtual Career Fair
  • Individuals interested in mentoring 4-H members during career mentorship circles
