4-H Canada - Club to Club Exchange

Deadline: January 14, 2019 11:55 PM  
Location: across Alberta  

Program Description:

 

Club to Club Exchanges

How it works

In groups of eight to ten delegates, 4-H members between the ages of 12 and 17 are twinned – paired together – with 4-H’ers from another province. Together with two chaperones, the delegates take part in a reciprocal homestay exchange.

Club to Club exchanges take place during the summer months and typically last seven to ten days.

Groups are matched based on their application, demographics of each group, activities and community involvement, and other considerations.

During their exchange, clubs will co-create a community-focused service project with their partnered Youth Service Leader as part of the Hands to Larger Service program.

Costs

Selected groups pay $150 per member and $150 per chaperone.

A $1,500 Club Support Award is available to each group selected for the exchange.

What’s in it for you?

4-H Canada creates experiential learning opportunities that ensure a safe, fun and inclusive environment with the support of caring adults. Club to Club exchanges aim to:

  • Enhance your knowledge and understanding of Canada
  • Connect you with 4-H members from another province
  • Enhance your appreciation of the diversity of the Canadian experience.

What’s in it for your club?

You can tell your stories and share your experiences with other 4-H’ers, helping to increase their understanding of Canada’s history and their appreciation of how other Canadians live, work and play.
