At 4-H Alberta…WE’RE HIRING

Join Alberta’s premier youth leadership organization!

4-H is a youth development organization that guides, supports and inspires Alberta’s greatest resource, the youth of Alberta.  We are Alberta’s premier youth organization that encourages youth to learn to do by doing, and empowers them to become leaders and volunteers in their clubs, communities, countries, and the world.

4-H Alberta is the newly restructured organizational body that streamlines the governance, structure and operating functions previously handled by the 4-H Council of Alberta, the 4-H Foundation of Alberta, and the 4-H Section of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.

With a century of leadership excellence; the organization is hiring!

Join Our Team

Currently, 4-H Alberta is looking for an experienced and enthusiastic Area Coordinator – West Central to join our team on a full-time basis. This role will require travel within central Alberta as well as work hour flexibility in order to meet the needs of a youth organization- evenings and some weekends.

Working in partnership with 4-H volunteers, 4-H Alberta Area Coordinators are hired to perform duties related to the administration and operation of a first-class, respected youth development program. The location of the job is in proximity to the West Central Region and will be home-based.

Reporting to a member of the Senior Leadership Team, this exciting role will see you carry out a range of responsibilities, including:
  • Ensuring the administration of the Regions’ clubs and community, as well as assigned services and activities within the area.
  • Acting as the primary consultant and mentor for volunteers in the Region through email, phone calls, and in person.
  • Supporting the promotion, coordination, delivery, and evaluation of all 4-H area programs and events.
  • Maintaining a healthy and productive partnership with area and club leadership as well as other 4-H Alberta staff.
  • Providing coaching, mentoring, and training support to new clubs, leaders, and members.
  • Ensuring programs designed for clubs and areas align with 4-H Alberta’s strategic direction.
  • Ensuring the administration of assigned services and activities within the area.
  • Working in harmony with the other Area Coordinators, Program Managers, Project and Resource Coordinators, Clubs, Districts, and the Region.

In order to qualify for this role, you will need a minimum of 3 years of youth mentorship and leadership training experience, along with experience in volunteer and community engagement and a background in agriculture or experience with rural audiences. You will also need relevant post-secondary education and a broad understanding and appreciation for organization accreditation and leader screening programs. Experience in program administration and implementation is also required. Previous experience in outreach, extension, and teaching adult education is an asset, as is previous experience in a volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization.

As our ideal candidate for this role, you will have a youth-first mentality that guides all of your decisions as well as excellent communication and leadership skills. Your collaborative spirit, ability to deliver on commitments, and passion for inclusivity will serve you well in this role as you lead and mentor volunteers in the delivery of 4-H programs and events.
