Volunteers

Volunteer with 4-H

Remember all the great times you had in 4-H? We’d like you to come back and help us pass on the 4-H experiences to a whole new generation. Or perhaps you were never in 4-H, but your child has benefited from the program. Or maybe you’ve never had a chance to get involved in 4-H and now you want to find out what you’ve been missing. Whatever the reasons, 4-H thrives on committed volunteers, just like you.

Want to help guide a 4-H club throughout the year? Become a General Leader. Do you really love cooking, photography or some other life skill and want to help teach those abilities to youth? Join as a Project Leader. Want to share your agricultural skills? Help out by offering a showmanship or judging clinic or welcoming members for a farm tour. Looking for some adventure? Chaperone a provincial or national activity.

Contact office@quebec4-h.com to find out more about volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer Leader Angela Neal reports on the 2016 Leadership Summit

On February 18th, 2016, a delegation from Quebec headed up to Ottawa for the beginning of a dynamic and fun-filled few days of interactive learning. The theme this year focused on the environment and healthy living. As all 4-H clubs are different, 4-H Canada offers many different sessions during the Leadership Summit.

Leaders from 4-H Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario shared their 4-H Fitness Projects. The great thing about these projects is the versatility of them. They can be used as stand-alone projects, but can also be put to work within other projects. There are games and resources to help kids get moving and keep them active, even during a more sedentary meeting.

After the final banquet, Quebec 4-H had the opportunity to teach everyone a little bit of square dancing, which is a fun, active and  social activity that we are lucky enough to have here. A big thank you goes out to everyone who came out to Ottawa to help out with the workshop, we couldn’t have done it without you!

All the leaders in Quebec are encouraged to make the time to go to the Leadership Summit next year. It’s a great opportunity to meet leaders from across the country who have the same passion for the organization as all of you.
