Do you have a passion for 4-H? Do you want to travel across the country? Do you want to meet incredible people from all walks of life? Do you want to represent your province on the national level?
Then consider applying for the 4-H Canada Youth Advisory Committee! The Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) is made up of one member from each province across the country, and assists 4-H Canada in areas such as programs, policies, conferences, communications, and marketing.
You will be placed in one of four working groups, and work with your other YAC members and 4-H Canada staff to deliver programs for our members. Through my experience with YAC, I’ve gotten to be a part of several 4-H Canada programs and policies, travelled to Ottawa and Toronto for conferences, met 4-Hers from across the country, and even met the Prime Minister!
YACs are chosen for a two-year term, with a possibility of a third year extension. If you’re over 18 years old and a current or former Saskatchewan 4-H member, you’re eligible!
If you have any questions or hesitations about
applying for YAC, please do not hesitate to email me at
Being the 4-H Saskatchewan YAC member has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I encourage everyone to apply!
Applications for the YAC position can be found under Board and Council Business. Deadline to apply is December 1. You must be 18-25 years old and have at least two years of experience as a 4-H member.
