VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

Classroom Agriculture Program (CAP)

What do volunteers do in CAP?
-Go into pre-registered classrooms across Alberta for 1 hour
-Use story-telling, hands-on props, and fun activities to teach grade 4 students about the importance of agriculture in our daily lives
-CAP provides training ideas, and guidance for volunteers
-The first presentation is about a 5 hour commitment - 4 hours of training and preparation followed by the presentation
-Training occurs in your area in February for spring classroom visits
Why volunteer for CAP?
-A strong agricultural industry leads to a strong and vibrant rural Alberta
-There is a growing disconnect, particularly in urban populations, between the farm and consumer. A greater understanding of where our food comes from will lead to greater support of agriculture
-CAP currently reaches about half the grade four students in Alberta, but with more volunteers could reach all students
- It's fun to work with the kids and you'll be well-supported!
To register as a volunteer, go to www.classroomagriculture.com, or get in touch with CAP General Manager Don George: 587-877-2544 or don.george@classroomagriculture.com
