  8. (215 and 317) Supporting Youth in 4-H Workforce Development

    (adult)

    Employers (and colleges) want people with the skills that youth practice regularly through their 4-H experience. The ability to describe the 4-H experience can make a tremendous difference in a youth’s success. Career choices are some of the biggest decisions youth will make and they can only aspire to what they know. The pace of change is so rapid that the jobs of tomorrow in some cases do not even exist today. In this session you will learn the critical skills that employers are seeking, how to support youth in describing their 4-H experience for maximum impact and gain an awareness of how to improve awareness of youth with in-demand careers and how to find out more.

    Club meeting a bore? We can help you fix that. Over time, we get into routines that can result in a lackluster club meeting structure and make meetings redundant and boring.

Participants attending this session will leave with grab-and-go resources to take back to their clubs to effectively engage members, enhance the components of the club meeting, and increase member engagement.

    Calling brave advisors!  Whether you are new or a seasoned advisor, any advisor who is open to learning is welcome to come to this class!  The plan is to have fun, celebrate your role as a 4-H advisor, and see if there are things we can improve. Many 4-H Educators from around Ohio were polled (by a 4-H volunteer) and asked if they had "ONE THING" to share with 4-H advisors, what would it be? The responses covered a wide range of topics including important elements of a 4-H club meetings, boundaries, encouragement, conflict, and more! The goal is to review their responses and look for ways to support our common goal of Positive Youth Development through our own actions and circles of influence.  It will be enlightening, challenging, and require some self-reflection in order Make the Best, Better.
