4-H Canada continues to be a leading positive youth development organization in Canada thanks to its volunteers and as such is pleased to honour all 7,700 across Canada and 2018’s National Volunteer Leader of the Year recipient, Karen Chambers. This year these outstanding volunteer leaders were celebrated at the 2019 4-H Canada Leadership Awards in Saskatoon on January 31, 2019.
Karen Chambers, from the Chilliwack 4-H Club in British Columbia, was chosen for this award because of her commitment to the 4-H movement and the dedication she has shown to her club and her greater community. Karen joined 4-H as a shy nine-year-old and immediately became a leader when she aged out of the program. Today, she has been leading her 4-H club for over 27 years.
This award, which is generously supported by The Co-operators, recognizes the important and crucial role 4-H volunteer leaders play in the program, and is driven by nominations from 4-H members who want to share the positive impact their provincial 4-H leaders have had on them and their communities.
