Citizenship Washington Focus
June 10-19, 2017
Baltimore and New York City
Learn leadership, live history, explore your nation!
Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a 4-H leadership program for high schoolers aged 14 to 18. 4-H members will stay at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center, near Washington, D.C., and participate in a week-long program enriching their lives with activities that broaden their appreciation and respect for themselves and others. 4-H members will tour national landmarks and meet their elected officials. Side trips to Fort McHenry and New York City will follow the conference.
Delegates participate in a variety of experiences in our nation's capital. Forums, workshops, prominent speakers, mock elections and congressional sessions are just a few of the fun activities offered. You won't want to miss this opportunity for a hands-on learning experience and a great time with other 4-H'ers.
4-H members will
- tour national landmarks,
- meet elected officials,
- create an action plan to help their communities, and
- create life-long memories.
"Citizenship Washington Focus gave me the opportunity to see what our government and America's history are all about and the ability to bring back what I learned to have a positive impact on my club, my community, my country and my world." — Nikki Shaw, Michigan
