Farmers' Markets Ontario

4-H Ontario and Farmers’ Markets Ontario are proud to announce a new partnership that will connect Ontario youth with agriculture and their community. The two organizations will provide ideas and tools for local 4-H Associations and farmers’ markets to connect like-minded youth and community members across the province.

Through this partnership, youth will have the opportunity to participate in a 4-H club at a local farmers market, host a fundraiser for their 4-H club, volunteer or recruit new 4-H’ers to the program. 4-H Ontario and Farmers’ Markets Ontario created a toolkit with resources for 4-H clubs, market managers, boards and municipalities to learn about making connections, requirements, fee subsidy programs and participant resources.

Co-operative Young Leaders Camp

The Co-operative Young Leaders camp is a unique summer camp for ages 13-18.  CYL is led by experienced CYL volunteers and educators in the co-operative sector. This camp is one part traditional camp experience and one part experiential education. The program takes youth out of the classroom environment and lets them lead. All participants will experience a week dedicated to all things co-operative including games and activities while also enjoying camp fires, swimming and connecting with their peers from all over Ontario.   

Being a CYL facilitator is an incredible professional development experience – a chance to strengthen your own leadership skills by engaging the minds and hearts of the next generation of co-operative leaders.

CYL facilitators are provided with opportunities to build their presentation and communication skills.  You will emerge with new leadership abilities, an amazing team-building experience rarely found in an office, and a confidence born of making a tangible difference in the lives of others.  Facilitator training will build on your base of knowledge and experience and get you energized for the 2020 CYL season.
