4-H Leaders Needed
The RVC Agricultural Society will be starting the Chestermere 4-H Multi Club (to begin October 1, 2023) and we are in need of adult volunteers.
Over the years, 4-H has quietly evolved into a dynamic program for youth ages 9 - 21 whose projects encompass everything from active living, arts, science and technology, crafts, cooking, agriculture and so much more! Today’s exciting 4-H program gives urban and rural youth and adults life-long skills such as cooperation, leadership, interpersonal relations, critical thinking, decision-making, organization, public speaking and community service. 4-H projects include (this is not a complete list):
health & fitness,
small animal care (rabbits, reptiles, cats etc)
written communications and more.
We require trained adult project leaders. For more information on 4-H leaders, please follow this link: https://www.4hab.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Volunteer-Leader-Guide-June-2020.pdf
There are three categories of adult volunteers:
Trained Screened Leaders. - Adults who hold a position of trust while mentoring youth, having responsibility/ authority for any financial matters or business activities, making any decisions on behalf of members, volunteers, or families and/or are perceived to be in a position of power. - Must be elected by the club - Must complete 4-H Screening - Must complete Commit to Kids (Abuse Prevention and Duty to Report) and Youth Safety at 4-H in Canada training - Whenever working with youth, they must also have a second trained leader or a screened volunteer present.
