Feed Your Future Conference for Young Women in Grades 9-12

Location: The Village, Brentwood’s Lifestyle Centre, 4039 Brentwood Road NW, Calgary  

Program Description:

 

We would like to invite young women in grades 9-12 from your 4-H clubs in the Calgary area to the free "Feed Your Future" conference that we are hosting in Calgary at the Village: Brentwood's Lifestyle Centre November 27th for approximately 100 young women from Calgary and the surrounding areas and communities.  Registration will be on a first come, first served basis and is limited to 100 women.  I am hoping you can pass this information along to the appropriate 4-H leaders with young women in grades 9-12.  We are focussing on any young women who may have expressed interest in a career in agriculture and we think that 4-H clubs would have many women interested in agriculture!

The conference will be an educational program designed to engage young women in agricultural careers while also empowering, connecting and inspiring them.  We will have a variety of speakers, a panel discussion and will incorporate a career fair surrounding the banquet area.  Our theme for the entire conference is based around the 5 Ingredients to Feed Your Future:

  1. Mental Wellness
  2. Physical Wellness 
  3. Personal Development 
  4. Building Your Brand 
  5. Networking & Connections

I have included an attachment with additional details.  You can also go to the link below for more information and registration information.

"Feed Your Future" is being put on by Ag for Life.  If you are not aware of Ag for Life I have also included some information. Our mission is to help all Albertans, whether they be from the city or country, to understand the incredible depth and opportunity that agriculture affords.  We are here to help educate Albertans about agriculture, food, farming and safety.  http://agricultureforlife.ca/
