First Nations Update
Matt Hill, Coordinator, Volunteer Support – Region 1 & First Nations Engagement of 4-H Ontario has recently been visiting First Nations communities across Ontario to raise awareness of 4-H programming. Matt has been in Six Nations First Nation and Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory
, with further plans to spend time within the Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reserve to further promote 4-H.
If your community is interested in hosting an Explore 4-H Day, be sure to contact Matt to set up a hands-on exploration of activities that cover Livestock, Crafts and Team Building! Contact Matt below for more details.
Launching the First Nations Engagement Initiative
4-H Ontario is looking for new First Nations members and volunteers! As the program continues to grow throughout the province, offering youth leadership and life skills, we're looking to grow our involvment from those in the First Nations communities. We're hoping to bring all of the same clubs and opportunities to youth in this area as across the rest of Ontario. To do so, we're looking to recruit new members and volunteers with the development of the First Nations Engagement iniative, which we hope will increase participation from these communities. Assisting with this project is our brand new summer student, Breanna Heaslip. Breanna is entering her fourth year at Western University in September. She will be working at the Two Rivers Community Development Centre in Ohsweken. This centre has been supportive of the program by providing our student with office space for the summer. Two Rivers has also been a helpful resource in the Six Nations community and we hope this partnership will help in promoting 4-H. Breanna will be actively promoting 4-H in the area by attending various events throughout the community in efforts to increase both member and volunteer involvement. So if you see her, be sure to come and chat about all the great things 4-H has to offer the First Nations community!
