4-H for First Nations

First Nations Ag & Finance has embarked on an important funding program aimed at helping initiate and support the development of 4-H clubs in Ontario First Nations communities.

The 4-H for First Nations program provides financial support to First Nations 4-H clubs to help cover the costs associated with agriculturally related projects. By providing funding the goal is to reduce barriers to participation and help ensure First Nations youth have the opportunity to learn and have experiences they might build upon in the future.

Head – Heart – Health – Hands
