2023 Arizona 4-H Summit
At Arizona 4-H Summit, our goal is to help provide teens with an environment in which they can explore what they are passionate about and learn how to take the next steps toward creating a future around that passion. Summit is an experience for Arizona 4-H teens to build problem-solving skills, practice putting innovative ideas into action, and an opportunity to explore future careers. It offers a creative space for teen leaders ages 14-18 to ignite and grow their unique spark.
Arizona 4-H Summit is supported by Arizona Farm Bureau, Bayer Crop Science, and other generous donors to the Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation.
One Health and Water
At Summit, the One Health theme creates opportunities for youth with diverse interests across the four pillars of 4-H: Agriculture, Citizenship, Healthy Living, and STEM. This year we will look at how water is related to One Health and the four pillars of 4-H. Every Arizona 4-H'er has a valuable perspective to share, so we hope you join us at Summit!
The Wildcat Experience
For many 4-H youth, Summit is an introduction to college life at the University of Arizona. Participants live in residence halls, collaborate in classrooms, and visit campus landmarks. Arizona 4-H partners with the Office of Admissions to help youth envision their path to joining the Wildcat family. Through collaboration with the Office of Student Engagement & Career Development, Summit participants also learn about careers in agriculture and beyond.
