UFA supports the Alberta Communities and Cooperatives Association (ACCA) as part of our
commitment to advocate for and support our members in the work they do to feed the world.
UFA also supports local youth as the next generation of agricultural leaders. By providing
opportunities for them to attend the ACCA Cooperative Youth Leadership camp, we instill a
foundational understanding of cooperatives and how they contribute to our vibrant agricultural
industry in partnership.
Attending the ACCA Cooperative Youth Leadership camp provides incredible opportunities for
personal development like leadership, teamwork and public speaking. It also offers hands-on,
collaborative learning experiences focused on cooperatives, entrepreneurship and agriculture.
Participants agree that the camp experience helps develop independence and confidence in a
fun environment where lifelong friendships can be cultivated. Learn more at ACCA.coop/youth.
