Dear 4-H volunteers and youth,
On January 22, 2022, the Ontario 4-H Council unanimously passed a motion to sell the 4-H Ontario office building located at 111 Main St. North in Rockwood, Ont. Upon the sale of the building, office space and storage space will be secured for 4-H Ontario staff to use as needed and store materials that are currently housed in the 4-H Ontario office building.
Over the past two years, 4-H Ontario staff have been working remotely and have not missed a beat. Like many across the province, 4-H Ontario staff have embraced digital tools that enable their team to work collaboratively and efficiently in a remote environment. Upon the sale of the building, all staff will permanently work remotely; however, have the option to meet in-person at an office space as needed.
4-H Ontario will see significant annual cost savings by renting or borrowing office and storage space in comparison to owning and maintaining an office building. The organization can then attribute more funds to youth programming and volunteer support across the province.
More details about the rented office space will be shared once a space is secured. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to you joining us for 4-H programming in 2022.
President, Ontario 4-H Council
