4-H Ontario

Volunteer Symposiums

Sponsored by FCC & Ontario Mutuals

Volunteer Symposiums serve to celebrate, inspire and invigorate 4-H Ontario volunteers. The day includes a keynote address, workshops on topics including STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math), ‘Every Meeting, Everywhere’, Best Practices in Review and hands-on learning activities from new project releases. The program caps off with a World Café Discussion engaging participants in the 5 W’s of Feedback – what, why, where, when and how. 
These Symposiums present an opportunity to meet and network with volunteers from across your 4-H Region to share ideas and best practices and find out how we can support each other as the 4-H family.
Each Symposium runs 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and lunch is provided. 
New volunteers are encouraged to attend the New Volunteer Orientation session offered as one of the options for the morning as part of each Symposium. All are invited to lunch and to stay for the keynote address and workshops in the afternoon.
Advance registration is required! Symposium attendance is capped at 40 participants. Please register with your Coordinator, Volunteer Support a minimum of two weeks in advance of the Symposium date via email or telephone.
