A grade 10 personal development credit is awarded when a student achieves all the requirements in an area of training or learning. The Personal Development Credit provides another way to encourage students to gain valuable life skills and experiences beyond the classroom, strengthening their connections with their communities.
This project outlines the requirements for members to have their 4-H project and leadership work recognized by the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development as a Personal Development Credit on their high school transcript. To meet the requirements, 4-H members must work closely with their guidance counselor, their Regional Program Coordinator and 4-H Nova Scotia to ensure the 110 hours of leadership and skill development work is approved, completed and documented as outlined in the protocol. This is an excellent opportunity for members to learn to document their 4-H learning to receive academic recognition.
