Citizenship | 4-H Project Resources & Curriculum
Citizenship Learning Objectives: Being a good citizen is an essential part of any 4-H project. For example, in the Citizenship project, youth will learn how to actively participate in their community as a contributing member. This looks like leading your club, helping younger peers, or even attending the National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C., where youth will broaden their appreciation, respect for themselves, and reflect on their position in the world. Youth in this program:
Learn about local government and the legislative processes at the state and national levels.
Youth will engage in changing a piece of the public world, discovering the possibilities of democratic citizenship, and building a commitment to acting in new and exciting ways.
Effectively communicate with peers and community members around the action project through various means (I.e., social media, written communication, etc...)
