Fridays (April 13th – May 15th) at 3:30 p.m. – 4-H World Changers for Middle School Girls and Everyone (Online) In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. Through self-chosen projects, kids are paired with mentors and given opportunities to lead. These projects and experiences bring out their potential, their passions, and their drive to help others as we empower them to become true leaders. What better way to help close the gender gap in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics than to join the movement to change the image of what a programmer or scientist looks like and does.
