Essential Elements of 4-H

Belonging –
Help show others that you miss them and find ways to connect.

Zoom call to check in and hear about everyone’s projects or plans.
Start a group Facebook chat, SLACK room, or Google Hangouts. (Remember to practice safety online and ask parental permission.)
Send snail mail!

Mastery –
Time out of school can be used to learn or build upon skills and interests. Check out these Activities for Learning at Home

Think Hands-On!
Take Virtual Tours
Master skills to help with stress management like deep breathing, stretching exercises, dance to their favorite music, or take a short walk outside.

Independence –
Help youth set their own goals for the next 6 weeks and build support for them to work toward those goals.

Here’s a resource on helping youth set S.M.A.R.T. Goals 

Generosity –
4-H Members already practice caring for their communities. Talk about the importance of social distancing as a way that we think about protecting those more vulnerable than ourselves. Look at practicing good hygiene as a way to care for others. Write letters to those in Senior Care Facilities or Community Living Facilities.
