Volunteer Symposium Conferences

2019 Volunteer Symposium Conferences

Volunteer Symposiums provide 4-H Ontario volunteers with key learning opportunities to raise awareness and understanding of current trends and issues such as drugs and cyber safety, dealing with challenging situations and behaviors. 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 a 4-H family.

New in 2019, 4-H Ontario is offering 'mini' or half-day symposiums and will include a light meal. Advanced registration is required. Symposium attendance is capped at 40 participants. Please register with your Coordinator, Volunteer Support a minimum of 2 weeks in advance of the Symposium date via email or telephone.
