4-H Canada is proud to announce the list of esteemed mentors for the 2018 Leadership Excellence Awards of Distinction (LEAD) recipients. Every year, 4-H Canada matches its LEAD recipients with a respected industry or community leader to mentor them as they navigate their post-secondary education and early career choices.
As one of the leading positive youth development organizations in Canada, 4-H Canada’s LEAD scholarship includes mentorship as an essential part of the program in helping guide these outstanding young people towards fulfilling their goals and career path. Building responsible, caring, and contributing youth with the support of mentors is at the core of 4-H Canada’s values and pairing the LEAD recipients with established and successful pioneers is an extension of those principles.
The scholarship recipients are matched with mentors based on 4-H Canada’s four leadership development pillars that are in line with the interests and career goals of each LEAD recipient.
