What is 4-H Leaders LEARN?
Across Canada, 4-H youth are constantly developing and refining their skills in areas related to Community Engagement & Communications, Science & Technology, Environment & Healthy Living and Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security – but what about our volunteer leaders?

4-H is all about a shared commitment to lifelong learning, and we know that our volunteer leaders are leading by example. That’s why we are proud to introduce the 4-H Leaders LEARN webinar series, a new training resource for volunteer leaders, 4-H staff and senior 4-H youth. Through online, real-time training webinars, participants will have the chance to build upon their 4-H foundational knowledge, continue developing the necessary skills and gain confidence to help them better support, mentor and empower today’s youth.

How Does the Webinar Series Work?
This November, you can register for one or more 4-H Canada led webinars— a live workshop delivered over the web—to learn more about, and ask questions on topics relevant to leading 4-H projects and running 4-H clubs. Recorded webinars as well as presentation content will be available following the webinar.

Learn at Your Convenience
Unable to join a 4-H Leaders LEARN webinar on the scheduled dates?

You can gain new knowledge to benefit 4-H programming in your local community and strengthen your own understanding of youth development from the comfort of your home at a time that suits you.

Recorded copies will be made available to watch at a later date, though we encourage you to sign up to meet 4-H leaders from across the country if you can.

Encouraging 4-H’ers to Find Their Voice through Public Speaking
4-H’ers know that effective presenters are not just born, rather they’re developed through practice and experience. How can 4-H leaders help to prepare and coach members – especially those formally speaking for the first time – to face the fear of public speaking, get up to speak and find their voice?

4-H Canada’s Leadership Development Pillars
In 2014, 4-H Canada established four Leadership Development Pillars to help guide 4-H programming in clubs, communities and provinces across the country. These thematic pillars were designed to reflect the many projects, events and opportunities that exist within 4-H, as well as to ensure that members have opportunities to be engaged in ways that are relevant to them and to the world around them. Learn more about the pillars today by vising here: http://www.4-h-canada.ca/programs-and-events. Register and watch here.

Engaging 4-H Families
This panel presentation on engaging 4-H families will feature experiences from 4-H practitioners – regional staff and volunteer leaders - and will explore two themes: recruiting new families to the 4-H club and engaging 4-H parents. We’ll identify recruitment and welcoming tips for new members and families, particularly families not traditionally familiar with 4-H. We’ll also discuss tactics for building a strong connection with 4-H parents. Register and watch here.
