Mar 1 at 2pm EST – Global Citizenship

Alayne Torreta, Rutgers 4-H

4-H Citizenship programs empower young people to be well-informed citizens who are actively engaged in their communities and the world.  Through a variety of teaching opportunities in Russia for 4-H professionals and teens, 4-H can increase understanding and bridge the cultural gap between the two countries.  Youth of Russia and the United States can look into the future of their relations with optimism and confidence, and actively engage in seeking new directions of mutually beneficial cooperation between the two nations. Alayne Torreta received a 2015 NAE4-HA Citizenship award.

May 4 at 2pm EST – Global citizenship

Kirk Astroth, Arizona 4-H

With 4-H type programs active in nearly 80 countries around the globe, there is increased interest from developing countries to establish 4-H type programs as a critical investment in youth and the future.  Increasingly, 4-H professionals are being tapped to assist with these efforts, as well as jump-start 4-H programs in countries that have had 4-H models in the past.  This session will share some lessons learned about doing such work, outline some opportunities for getting involved as a 4-H professional, and share resources, teaching outlines, and materials for conducting 4-H positive youth development training in other countries.
