Iowa 4-H Builds Citizenship, Leadership and Communication Skills

New research shows that Iowa youth credit their 4-H club experiences with making them better citizens, leaders and communicators. Iowa 4-H’er survey responses offer solid evidence that participation in Iowa 4-H clubs provides youth opportunities to learn and practice critical workplace skills that employers seek such as active listening, critical thinking, effective speaking and writing, time management, team building, sound decision making and service to others.

See and hear three 4-H’ers at work at the 2009 Iowa State Fair. They are tomorrow’s leaders in action.

    Outstanding job! Very professional and informative. Just in time for 4-H Week too!

    Well done. I think that the real story of the featured youth is probably understated. They are outstanding.

    Way to go Daniel! – I posted this on our 4-H Clubs website – http://www.centralareatechteam.org (Daniel was a member and continues to be a mentor) He is a REALLY great leader and mentor!

    We should have EVERY county create a video like this, and send them ALL in to the state legislature, and we can show them how CRUCIAL 4-H is for youth.
