Get Connected in Your 4-H World
As a 4-H Volunteer you have the world of 4-H resources at your fingertips.

Community Service Learning
4-H has long been known for its efforts to give back to the community. The Citizenship National 4-H Mission Mandate has served to reinforce and uplift these efforts as a critical part of the 4-H experience. During this session, participants will identify similarities and differences between community service and service-learning opportunities and identify steps that can be taken to help 4-H members achieve even greater benefits from serving their communities.
Time will be provided for participants to exchange ideas on successful community service opportunities that their 4-H Clubs have completed. Resources will also be provided to volunteers and staff that they can share with 4-H members to more effectively plan and implement service opportunities.
