Going Global Exchanges

Going Global 4-H Exchanges

This program is a reciprocal international exchange that offers a unique opportunity for youth to represent 4-H in their country while gaining new friendships and experiences that will last a lifetime. Canadian youth participants are “twinned” with another 4-H youth in the host country, and live with that family throughout their time abroad. Their “exchange twin” then travels to Canada and is hosted by the Canadian 4-H youth and their family. Exchanges can last between 2- 4 weeks in each country.


This program provides opportunities for 4-H members to:

  • experience a new country and expand global perspectives
  • take on leadership roles within 4-H
  • develop and share skills
  • learn about sustainable agriculture practices and explore issues related to food security
