The AIA is a member and supporter of both the Classroom Agriculture Program (CAP) and the Alberta Science and Literary Association (ASLA).
CAP is a non-profit initiative that teaches grade four students the importance of agriculture in their daily lives. CAP volunteers go directly into classrooms to discuss farming and agriculture with grade four students. CAP has started recruitment for the fall! Click here for more information!
With programs for students, children, educators and the general public, ASLA "brings science to life" in communities throughout Alberta. ASLA is the umbrella organization for six science networks in Alberta. Each network runs programs that place volunteer scientists and engineers in the classroom, offering hands on experiential science opportunities to teachers and students - at no cost.
AIA members are a source of volunteers for both of these organizations. Volunteering is a great way to share your knowledge and experience with young minds and top up your CPD hours.
