AltaLink committed to 4-H

AltaLink has renewed its three-year partnership with Alberta 4-H and will continue as a Legacy Builder and Presenting Partner of 4-H’s communications program. As a result of this partnership, more than 350 clubs across the province will receive funding to develop their members’ public speaking and presentation skills. “Alberta 4-H provides young Albertans with the tools and resources to grow into confident and capable leaders, said Leigh Clarke, senior vice president, external engagement and general counsel. “AltaLink is proud to support the communications component of a 4-H member’s development.” “Just as 4-H strengthens the communities where clubs operate, AltaLink strives to strengthen the areas where we operate by building relationships and supporting the community while providing safe and reliable electrical transmission service,” said Clarke. As part of the partnership, AltaLink will provide $100,000 in cash and in-kind annual contributions to 4-H’s communications program at the club, district, regional and provincial levels. AltaLink employees will participate in the partnership by volunteering at 4-H events throughout the year. “AltaLink has been a great supporter of 4-H since 2003,” said Bruce Banks, chief executive officer of the 4-H Foundation of Alberta. “Our 4-H alumni say that public speaking and presentation skills are one of the most valuable assets they acquire through the 4-H program. Thanks in part to AltaLink’s support, Alberta 4-H is one of the best youth programs in the country.”
