Western Regional Leaders’ Forum Webinar: Youth Connecting in Your Community @ Chelan County Extension Office
Mar 2 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Western Regional Leaders’ Forum is having a host site at the Chelan County Extension office.  Pizza and water will be provided, please RSVP to Michelle Lain.  This is a training for all leaders, parents and teens are welcome.

There will also be a drawing for a $25 gift card for all those who are at the workshop.

4-H youth are philanthropists, advocates, and leaders.  These are a few ways 4-H members can be involved in their communities.  Do you have a story about 4-H youth being good neighbors, creating strong communities, and doing the right things?  Be inspired by 4-H members in many states who have been creating a “revolution of responsibility”.  Volunteers will gain ideas about how to consistently include citizenship and community service in every 4-H club and county meeting.  Review curriculum.  See templates for planning.  Hear suggestions from other volunteers and Chris Clover!  Understand opportunities for youth to plan and share their passion through opportunities in local, state, and global civic engagement projects.  Consider ways to use social media to celebrate ways that 4-H members are involved and responsible.  As one are of national focus, the 4-H citizenship program includes important life skills.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to: recognize the value of including citizenship and community service in 4-H; identify ways to get youth engaged in community issues that they are passionate about; encourage and help members get involved in short-term and long-term citizenship activities; and, promote local, state, and national citizenship programs.
