Tracy Keifenheim and two other area 4-H Program Educators will continue to offer chats over the next year with different topics. Each month a new topic will be selected with three 4-H Conversation Corner meeting options for volunteers. The conversations are a resource and support for club leaders and youth and adult project leaders. Club and project leaders from Ozaukee, Fond du Lac, and Washington County are invited to join these one hour, optional, Zooms. The conversations are an opportunity for leaders to ask questions, brainstorm, and share ideas with other 4-H leaders, and 4-H Program Educators.
The September topic was “Program Approvals for In-Person Meetings.” Participants learned how to safely hold in-person events and the process for having events approved. Based on the evaluations from September’s Conversation Corners 100% strongly agreed the topic was relevant and timely. 100% agreed and strongly agreed the discussion increased their understanding of the topic, and 100% agreed or strongly agreed they would attend a future conversation corner discussion.
Fond du Lac County 4-H clubs and groups are now meeting both in-person and virtually! Youth and adult 4-H leaders are meeting to plan the 2020-2021 4-H year, set goals for their groups, discuss community service possibilities, and more! 4-H volunteers and leaders are thinking creatively to continue providing youth development opportunities for young people.
October’s discussion will focus on The Wisconsin 4-H Movement #wi4hmovement. We will discuss the purpose of the 4-H movement, how it was developed, resources and tools, and examples of each value of the 4-H movement. The 4-H Movement is committed to providing youth development opportunities and promoting positive change for young people.
