A recent study by Employment and Social Development Canada highlighted that from 2013 to 2022 there will be almost 74,000 projected job openings in Canadian agriculture, but only 49,000 projected job seekers- that is a 34 per cent shortfall. For Canada’s passionate 4-H members, this means a world of opportunity as they prepare to become the leaders in the advancement of agriculture.
Our Summer Opportunities provides a chance for 4-H members to get relevant and meaningful work or volunteer experience to help fill the impending job gap in the agriculture sector. Our Summer Opportunities, which include Careers on the Grow, 4-H Going Global Exchanges, Club to Club Exchanges and the newly launched Going Global Exchanges in Ghana give them a true “Learn To Do By Doing” experience.
