The unique quality of 4H
4H is a member-led organisation where the members themselves decide what to explore and study.
The programme focuses on the following subjects:
The first 4H-club in Norway was founded in 1926. The organisation is dedicated to positive youth development.
4H Norge is organised at three levels, club, county and national. 4H-clubs elect their own executive boards at their Annual General Meetings. Each club is represented at the county Annual General Meeting, where representatives for the county clubs are elected to attend the national AGM, which is held bi-annually.
The main national activities include finding financial sources for the organisation, making and publishing 4H-projects and the member's magazine, arranging National 4H-camps, leadership-training courses, and coordinating international programs.
