Four Albertans are among the 22 young people chosen for this year’s Hands to Larger Service program.

The program gives senior 4-H youth and young alumni the opportunity to travel across the country in the summer, working in partnership with youth taking part in 4-H Canada’s Club to Club Exchanges to plan and implement community service projects.

The goal of the program, created as part of the federal government’s Canada Service Corps, is to give young people the chance to advance their leadership skills and learn project management through hands-on experience. It is open to young Canadians aged 15 to 25.

The four Alberta Youth Service Leaders for 2019 are Brookelyn Felske, Amanda Hardman, Carissa McGregor, and Kianna McGregor.
