4-H International Exchange Opportunities

Ready to expand your world? Consider the 4-H International Exchange program. You can start out small with the summer, month-long exchange program. You may host a 12-17 year old Japanese student if you have a child the same gender and within 2 years of age as the student. Norwegian, Argentina and Costa Rican 15-19 year old matches are available as well.

High-school, year long- matches are available for families. Host families do not have to have children of the same age or gender as the Exchange student.

If you are really adventurous, try the Outbound program. Opportunities are available for 13-19 year olds to travel to Japan, Finland, Australia, Argentina, and Costa Rica.

Deadline to participate is February 1.

4-H Project Record Time

It's time to compile your 2010 4-H club activities into 4-H Project Records. Keeping track of what you did is a great way to have a sense of accomplishment, and to create a nice "scrapbook" you can look back on. Plus, if you enter it into competition, you could win $50.00. Project Records are due January 28. Click Here for more information.
