Position Screened Volunteer - 4-H Nova Scotia
Impact Statement Join the “Learn to do by Doing” movement which has been growing strong in Nova Scotia for 100 years. Volunteers with the program often learn many hands-on skills right alongside members while providing them support and guidance. 4-H is a versatile program with four pillars; Community Engagement and Communications, Science and Technology, The Environment and Healthy Living, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security. There are projects to suit everyone’s interests and abilities. As a volunteer you have the opportunity to positively impact youth who leave the program with the confidence and skills needed to be productive contributors to their communities.
Description Screened Volunteers are vital to the success of the 4-H program in Nova Scotia. Screened Volunteers support Trained Leaders at meetings and events in order to provide additional supervision of members.
