Cleaver Kids: Who Are They?

Cleaver Kids in 4-H Alberta is for children aged 6-8 years. Cleaver Kids is an introduction to 4-H through fun, hands on learning that is age appropriate.

To register with Cleaver Kids for the 2019-2020 club year, the child must be age six as of January 1, 2020 or must not have reached age nine by that time. Those who will turn nine before January 1, 2020 will register as Junior 4-H members.

Cleaver Kids enjoy learning about 4-H by first learning about the basic requirements and then focusing on the four areas of skills development outlined in this document and the Cleaver Kids Leader Guide.

4-H Clubs can be creative and design stand-alone activities that foster skills development in a progressive manner. Stand-alone learning activities, that are age appropriate and different than 4-H Members' project activities, serve to prepare Cleaver Kids to transition into Junior 4-H Members and progress through the 4-H program. Keeping learning fresh at each stage helps to ensure that they remain engaged and interested. Engagement of Cleaver Kids at club level is about FUN, FUN, FUN and fun requires family involvement


Cleaver Kids Focus On:

  • Developing new friendships.
  • Developing a sense of belonging to the club and community.
  • Developing listening skills and abilities to express themselves.
  • Learning to set goals, track progress and celebrate achievements.

More information can be found in the Cleaver Kids Leader Guide. If you would like more information please contact the 4-H Council of Alberta.
