Early Childhood

Introducing “Making the Best Better: Youth Directed Experiences”! This opportunity is designed for youth to highlight work they are doing in human development through leading experiences for other young people. These experiences may be through their role as a camp counselor, intern or teens as teacher, workshop teacher, babysitter or day care employee, junior leader, or simply as an older 4-H member coaching those younger in their club or project area.

 

Youth are highly encouraged to apply on their own behalf but they may also be nominated.
