Opportunity to Pilot 4-H Global Citizenship Lessons

Are you looking for a way to connect your 4-H club to cultures around the globe and help your youth develop life skills that will help them be successful in our interconnected and global society? This Spring, WSU 4-H is looking for a few 4-H clubs or groups (adults and/or youth) to pilot our new 4-H Global Citizenship Lesson plans. These short, interactive lesson plans will teach youth and adults about 4-H global connections, hunger, culture, and about Burundi (a small country in Africa that WSU 4-H partners with to help start 4-H school gardens). For example, one of the lessons teaches youth about basket weaving and includes an activity teaching youth how to create their own basket out of newspaper. Each lesson plan is about 15-20 minutes long and can be easily incorporated into a 4-H club or committee meeting.

Would your club be interested in helping our project? If so, please contact us! We are looking for clubs or groups to pilot a few lesson plans and then provide feedback about the lesson plans. The lessons can be taught by an adult volunteer, 4-H staff member or a teen leader—it’s up to you! If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Lauren Hrncirik at lauren.hrncirik@wsu.edu or 509-754-2011 ext. 4314 or Mary Katherine Deen mdeen@wsu.edu or 509-682-6956.
