2019/20 Member Travel Opportunities

4-H USA National Conference 

March 28 – April 2, 2020 – Washington D.C.
One Manitoban (aged 16-19) will join up to nine more Canadians for this American conference
(Registration fee: $300)
The USA National 4-H Conference  is the premiere civic engagement opportunity for 4-H members across the U.S. One 4-H member, aged 16-19 at the time of travel, from each province forms the Canadian delegation.
Conference delegates choose an important societal topic and in round
table groups prepare a formal briefing. Briefings are presented to U.S.
federal officials around the Washington, D.C. area.
In addition to the conference activities, 4-H Canada delegates have a chance to tour Washington, visit some of the nation’s famous cultural and political sites, including the Lincoln Memorial and Capitol Hill, and visit the Canadian Embassy.

4-H Canada Citizenship Congress 

May 5 – 10, 2020 – Ottawa
Seven Manitobans (aged 16-21) will participate as part of 60 Canadian delegates at this conference.
(Registration fee: $200)
The 4-H Canada Citizenship Congress will deepen your understanding of governance and public policy, nurture your communication skills, and expand your horizons as you discover some of what it means to be Canadian in the nation’s capital. Workshops will culminate with the annual debate where you and your fellow 4-H members will construct insightful arguments, and practise your skills of persuasion and public speaking. Ultimately you’ll learn more about Canada, its government and yourself.
Past Citizenship Congress themes have included “Canada: Where Do We Stand?”, “Redefining Rural” and “Canada: Past, Present and Future”. The theme for 2019 is The Power of a Vote: Value of Civic Engagement and will be exploring civic empowerment around the federal election later in the year.
The Citizenship Congress will take place at the Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre in Ottawa.

Alberta Senior Members’ Conference

October 2020 (to be confirmed) – Edmonton
Two Manitobans (aged 15-20) will join 4-H Alberta members at this conference
(Registration fee: $200)
This weekend will give senior 4-H members the chance to meet and connect with fellow 4-Hers from across Alberta who are in the exact same position you are – they are preparing to transition into life after high-school. Whether headed off to post-secondary, to start a career or embark on a trip, you probably don’t really know what to expect or how you are going to balance it all. Speakers, sessions and activities, chosen and designed with input from Alberta’s Ambassadors who themselves have just completed that phase of their life, will leave you feeling better equipped for what lies ahead. Plus, you’ll have a whole network of new friends to lean on throughout the process.
