Employers (and colleges) want people with the skills that youth practice regularly through their 4-H experience. The ability to describe the 4-H experience can make a tremendous difference in a youth’s success. Career choices are some of the biggest decisions youth will make and they can only aspire to what they know. The pace of change is so rapid that the jobs of tomorrow in some cases do not even exist today. In this session you will learn the critical skills that employers are seeking, how to support youth in describing their 4-H experience for maximum impact and gain an awareness of how to improve awareness of youth with in-demand careers and how to find out more.
Club meeting a bore? We can help you fix that. Over time, we get into routines that can result in a lackluster club meeting structure and make meetings redundant and boring. Research shows that non-stimulating meetings influence member retention and participation. How do you keep your members engaged? Participants attending this session will leave with grab-and-go resources to take back to their clubs to effectively engage members, enhance the components of the club meeting, and increase member engagement. Limited to: 60 participants. Presented by: Alisha Faudie & Ashlee Dietz
