Across Canada, 4-H youth are constantly developing and refining their skills in areas related to Community Engagement & Communications, Science & Technology, Environment & Healthy Living and Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security – but what about our volunteer leaders?
The Leaders Learn webinar series is a training resource for volunteer leaders and senior 4-H members to build upon their 4-H foundational knowledge, continue to develop the necessary skills and gain the confidence to help them better support, mentor and empower today’s youth. 4-H is all about a shared commitment to lifelong learning, and we know that our volunteer leaders are leading by example!
June 2021 Webinars
The Leaders Learn series returns with three webinars in June 2021 on topics that leaders have identified as being particularly important, and we hope you’ll join us.
How to Build Trust and Connection Online

Speaker: Leah Coss
Do you feel disconnected from others when communicating online? Is it taking longer to build a connection with the people you interact with? You aren’t alone. In this webinar with Leah Coss, you’ll learn how a few simple changes in your online communication habits will promote incredible results from your club, peers, and team.
This workshop will cover the reality of “Zoom fatigue,” help you build trust faster and more authentically, and increase your confidence to feel more connected when interacting with others online. A recording of this webinar will be shared with registered attendees after the session.
