Code of Conduct
The 4-H program encourages leadership qualities, develops strong citizens, and opens the door to many career choices.
- Our motto is “Learn to Do by Doing”; members are expected to complete project requirements on their own. Parents, leaders and members are encouraged to coach, or lend a hand if necessary, but members must do their own project work.
- All solely 4-H Nova Scotia events where minors are present will be alcohol-free.
- Underage drinking, use of illicit drugs and public intoxication will not be tolerated at 4-H events.
- Please keep cell phone usage to a minimum when at 4-H meetings.
- 4-H members, leaders, parents and guardians will conduct themselves in a courteous and respectful manner. They will exhibit good sportsmanship and will be positive role models to others.
- Respect the judges’ opinions and knowledge. Learn from the experience of being judged.
- Abuse by physical and non-physical means, or through communication, real or perceived, is not acceptable behaviour. Profane or offensive language will not be tolerated.
- Remember that leaders are volunteers. Please respect the time that they are giving. Always try to thank them.
- Non-observance towards any of these guidelines may result in disciplinary action as determined by the Nova Scotia 4-H Council.
