How to Get Involved in the Global 4-H Network Summit

This summer, the Shaw Centre in downtown Ottawa will be transformed into a sea of green and a hub of energy and excitement as 4-H youth, professionals and volunteer leaders from around the world come together to celebrate, learn and be inspired!

Across Canada, 4-H’ers and volunteer leaders have been hugely involved in the Global 4-H Network Summit excitement, sitting on planning committees, spreading the hype on social media and registering as provincial delegates. It is just getting started though, and there are still many ways for YOU to make your mark on the global 4-H movement and be part of this once-in-a-lifetime event!

Volunteer!
If you are a high school student and you find yourself in Ottawa July 11-14, 2017, why not chalk up some extra volunteer hours, chilling with us in the A/C at the Shaw Centre. There are a variety of different volunteer roles available. We are also looking for 4-H alumni & leaders to help. Visit the global-4-h-network.com/volunteer to sign-up.

Takeover the Global 4-H Network Summit Instagram
Show your 4-H Colours by taking over the Global 4-H Network Summit Instagram account for one week and sharing a glimpse into the world of your 4-H club and the projects you are working on with 4-H’ers around the world. It’s a great way to show your pride and share the things that make your 4-H club unique! Visit the Global 4-H Network blog to learn more. 

Check out Education, Travel and 4-H Volunteer Opportunities…for Free!
The Global 4-H Opportunities Expo will showcase education, volunteer, partnership and career opportunities for youth at post-secondary schools, NGOs and 4-H corporate partners. This free and open event is a great starting point if you’re looking for ideas or inspiration for the next phase of your life!
