4-H Alberta - Club Week [ages 15-20]

Deadline: May 15, 2019 11:59 PM

Program Description:


Club Week is a personal development program for 4-H senior members, ages 15 to 20. The overall goal of Club Week is for delegates to learn about themselves and others through small group discussions on topics that are pertinent to their lives.

The majority of the program is undertaken in a small group, led by a volunteer facilitator. In this group they discuss, analyze and make sense of important ideas. The volunteer facilitator provides mentorship and leadership to the group.

Club Week is an enrichment program - it focuses on the delegate being the learner and the teacher. This happens through discussion based learning, mentoring relationships, and hands-on social learning. Club Week is a collaborative environment, with the goal of broadening our 4-H members’ ideas and understanding of the world.

The Club Week program consists of sessions undertaken in a small group. In addition, delegates have the opportunity to plan a portion of the program, they participate in large group activities (open space technology, group challenges, overcoming adversity speaking session), and fun activities (dances, physical and leisure sessions, and free time).

Club Week is about daring to be ourselves; however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.
