4-H in Nova Scotia is supported by very active volunteers who work to support the mission of 4-H in the province. The objectives and mission of 4-H Nova Scotia are realized by implementing a significant number of programs and activities for both the youth members and adult volunteers.

The 4-H Nova Scotia Board of Directors consists of volunteers and staff (ex-officio) representing all regions in Nova Scotia. The Board appoints committees of 4-H volunteers, members, and staff to assist, coordinate, and implement programs as required throughout the year.

Resilience Plan

COVID-19 has resulted in economic and operational uncertainty in 4-H Nova Scotia and its communities, the worst disruptive crisis in its 100-year history. Simultaneously, 4- H NS assumed complete control and responsibility for the permanent delivery of the 4-H program in Nova Scotia.

For 4-H NS to meet the challenges arising from these changes, we need an agile and strategic response to identify and proactively manage the risks that can be anticipated and the investment in capabilities to cope with events that cannot be expected.

In order to:

  1. Minimize the harm done by the adverse consequences arising out of COVID-19 and the actions taken to date to comply with provincial and local laws, regulations, and requirements,
  2. Shepherd 4-H NS through the transfer of control of the 4-H program from the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and
  3. Bring 4-H NS back to full functioning in the safest and most practical way,

4-H NS has implemented a resilience plan to guide and support the next two years.
