4-H Canada's Hands To Larger Service Program

4-H Canada created the Hands to Larger Service program through a new youth program called Canada Service Corps, which encourages young Canadians to get involved in service to their communities and gain valuable skills and experience that will benefit them in every aspect of life. It will also provide young Canadians with the opportunity to build service opportunities that currently do not exist.

Through Hands To Larger Service, 4-H Canada will select 30 Youth Service Leaders, between the ages of 16-25, who will be trained to support and lead community-based service projects in summer 2018. They will travel across Canada co-creating community-focused service projects in partnership with other youth as part of the 4-H Club to Club exchange program, showcasing Canada’s diverse heritage, regional landscapes and a shared commitment to youth leadership and community engagement.

This is an exciting opportunity for 4-H youth across Canada to demonstrate their leadership skills and commitment to community engagement!

Youth service leaders will grow new skills, such as: 

  • Learn project management skills
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Build networks within communities
  • Gain volunteer experience
  • Meet other 4-H’ers from across Canada
  • Deliver meaningful service projects with a lasting impact
  • Help create a culture of service for youth across Canada

Applications to be a Youth Service Leader are open from February 1 to March 16, 2018.
