Registration is now open for Citizenship Washington Focus and Leadership Washington Focus!
What are these events? Well, here's a little bit about it from their webpage:
"What does it mean to be a good citizen or a leader? Are you being a strong civic leader for your community, country and world?
For more than 50 years, thousands of high school youth from all across the country have travelled to Washington, DC each summer to partake in the preeminent 4-H citizenship and leadership experience--Citizenship Washington Focus. And in summer 2014 we introduced the precursor to CWF, the first national 4-H event designed exclusively for middle school 4-H’ers, Leadership Washington Focus.
We have welcomed high school 4-H’ers to put their leadership skills to work in their communities and now we are looking build more 4-H leaders with LWF so they can return as a delegate to CWF.
CWF and LWF are more than just another DC field trip – 4-H'ers learn essential civic leadership skills and leave with the tools that will allow them to bring about real change in their communities."
Yes, we may live only a few miles from our Nation's Capital, but this program connects youth from all over the nation! This is a great opportunity for middle and high school aged youth.
