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 2018. 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 28 - Aug 3 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

4-H Alberta and the Alberta Conservation Association are partnering to provide 4-H Alberta members with the opportunity to raise pheasants, from day old chicks to their release as 13 to 14 week old birds. This innovative project engages 4-H youth in wildlife and their habitat and helps them gain a first-hand understanding of successful husbandry and business models for raising and marketing pheasants. 4-H Pheasant Project members must commit to the number of pheasant chicks that they wish to raise by February 9, the pheasant chicks will be available in mid-May and will be released into suitable habitat in August/September.
Does this project sound interesting? Register for the Pheasant Project this fall! for any questions, get in touch with 4-H Specialist Ginny Smith at 403-381-5815 or via email at email@example.com
