Volunteer Role & Responsibilities

The Classroom Agriculture Program (CAP) is dedicated to teaching grade four students in Alberta the importance of agriculture in their daily lives. CAP is currently recruiting volunteers to deliver one-hour classroom presentations.

CAP volunteers have diverse backgrounds, educations and experiences in agriculture. However, they all share a common passion: they are dedicated to preserving and promoting agriculture.

CAP volunteers each have unique presentations because they focus on their own specialty, whether it be animals, crops or the environment. At the same time, they also share a common message – that agriculture plays a very important role in our lives and in Alberta’s economy.

Volunteers go into pre-registered classrooms for one hour. They use story telling, hands-on props and fun activities to engage students. Each volunteer is supplied with educational material for the students and teacher.

Volunteer training is provided each year in January and February. Presentations are delivered between February and June. Volunteers choose a presentation date that works for themselves and the school.

Your first presentation will take about five hours of your time, including training, preparation and the presentation.
