Uurainen 4H association

4H activity supports childrens' and youngsters´ growth towards a responsible and enterprising adulthood. The activities we offer consider the different stages of child´s development with the focus on learning by doing. We organize trips, camps, free time activities, youngster´s work life courses and events for children and youth. We also offer afternoon activities and support entrepreneurship and have a program where young people can set up an own 4H business. The 4H clubs teach practical skills and knowledge with the help of our instructors. Through this activity children and youngsters get abilities to become an active citizen and employee.

The Finnish 4H

The 4H association is a national, unified and constantly evolving civic organization that supports children’s and youngster´s life management and spirit of enterprise. 4H is Finland’s leading organization in producing activities for adolescents. The Finnish 4H´s exchange programs are a good example of worldwide collaboration. Many exchange students come to Finland from different countries and also students from Finland travel through 4H. 4H in Finland also focuses on forest- and nature education that aims teaching children how to appreciate nature environment and learn to think and act ecologically. Also the goal is to tell children and adolescent about work- and hobby opportunities that are related to forests. In Uurainen we have forest trip days when we visit a place that is related to forests and forest industry.
