Club Week Facilitators Needed!

posted Nov 8
Club Week Facilitator Application
Deadline MAY 1

4-H Alberta is currently seeking applications from individuals who are interested in acting as a facilitator for Club Week 2019. Being a Club Week Facilitator is a truly enjoyable and all-encompassing experience. You’ll spend your time facilitating a small group (session materials will be provided and all sessions will be reviewed at the facilitator training), acting as Staff of the Day (responsibilities may include leading a reflection activity and introducing activities) as well as participating in daily Staff Meetings (where all staff will meet to discuss concerns, review program details and share successes). If you aren’t a Club Week alumnus yourself, not to worry as it certainly isn’t a prerequisite! You’ll be surrounded by a fantastic group of 4-H members and supportive staff members who will help to guide you through this unforgettable volunteer experience. To learn more about the Club Week program, click here

Accepting the Club Week Facilitator role would require you to be present for an orientation session and for the entire duration of the Club Week program, July 20-26 inclusively. This year, Club Week will be held at the Hinton Training Centre in Hinton, Alberta. 4-H Alberta also requires successful applicants to complete a Criminal Background Check that includes the Vulnerable Sector. 

The Application Deadline for those interested in being a Club Week Facilitator is May 1. The Club Week Facilitator Application Form is available here

Executive Summary 2017-2020

In 2017, representatives from the 4-H partners worked together to create a three-year 4-H Alberta strategic plan with a commitment to manage the plan. This strategic plan is designed to help guide 4-H Alberta in its work over the next three years. The intent is to help us shape 4-H's future, follow a set of guiding principles and ensure that 4-H remains relevant, effective and viable. In doing so, the plan will remain fluid to ensure 4-H Alberta is consistent with and aligned with Member and Leader priorities, community needs, and government priorities.
