4-H Events - Citizenship Washington Focus

This year, the trip dates are June 28 – July 5, 2014; orientation will be held on April 26, 2014.

Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a 4-H leadership program for high school youth, ages 15-19, from across the country. Take your 4-H experience to another level through Citizenship Washington Focus, a six-day intensive summer citizenship program for youth.  CWF delegates learn about the democratic process and their role as citizens while they experience our nation’s capital. Get the inside scoop about how government really works from prominent guest speakers and interact with Maine’s state senators and representatives and/or their staffers. Program fellows lead bill writing workshops, as well as a national issues forum and mock elections. There are congressional sessions that prepare youth for leadership now and in the future. Non-4-H and mature 14 year olds youth may attend this event with approval from the county office they represent.  Generally this is a one-time experience, but youth may attend more than once but they will pay the full participation price. The 4-H Foundation does not provide scholarships to non 4-H members.

For more information, visit www.4hcwf.org and contact your local Extension Office.
