As CEO of 4-H Alberta, Kurt Kinnear is responsible for managing all facets of the operations. He has a proven track record with over 15 years of experience driving growth in community and youth programming.

Growing up in rural Alberta, Kurt Kinnear has had his share of “work experience.” After moving off the farm, he earned a diploma in Leadership, and a degree in Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership. Kurt’s passion for leadership and innovation brought him to the University of Calgary’s Outdoor Centre where he became a senior leader, implementing many new initiatives, such as the Outdoor Council of Canada, which now trains thousands of leaders across Canada to take youth safely into the back country. His commitment to impacting communities earned him Calgary Avenue Magazine’s, “Top 40 Under 40”.  Kurt is co-founder of Hubudub, a community centered tech company focused on supporting communities and organizations to improve the experiences that they offer to their audience, and help keep them engaged and improve their physical and mental wellbeing. Kurt has a passion for preparing youth to be the new change-makers.

Kurt’s pride and joy are his wife Maddy and their three children, Liam, Declan, and Jane
