Civics and service projects
Civic engagement empowers young people to connect, learn, engage, lead, and impact their communities and world. As an original mission mandate of 4-H, civic engagement includes leadership and personal development, civic education, service-learning, and community engagement.
Civic engagement – youth take individual or collective action on a topic/issue over time with the goal of leading positive change in their communities.
Global education – youth travel to another country to learn about diversity, global citizenship, and to be an ambassador of goodwill
Service-learning – youth plan and conduct a thoughtful organized service project or event in response to community identified assets and needs.
