Oct. 2-8 is National 4-H Week and this year’s theme is “#4HGrown.” Sanborn County is celebrating the 4-H youth who have made an impact on the community and are stepping up to the challenges of a complex and changing world.
The 4H Grow True Leaders Campaign is the first of its kind for National 4-H Council – a national, multi-platform initiative that will support the organization’s growth goals of empowering 10 million youth by 2025 (a 67 percent increase). The campaign and the event are designed to give young people across the nation a forum to put their voices into positive action and rally the nation to invest in the next generation of true leaders.
The 4-H youth development program provides “learn by doing” experiences to encourage youth to experiment, innovate and think independently. 4-H programs are offered through school-based, after-school and camp settings and within community clubs, where groups meet regularly to work on projects, perform community service and develop leadership skills. Through this unique process, youth obtain essential life skills, such as problem solving, decision making, coping and communicating.
“4-H provides positive non-school learning opportunities that are critical for the development of young people,” 4-H Leader Paula Linke said.
“As a result, 4-H youth are able to contribute and make a difference in positive ways in their homes, schools and communities throughout Sanborn County and South Dakota. 4-H provides an opportunity for youth and adults to work together while developing life skills, such as leadership, through exploring the interests of young people.”
