Citizenship Washington Focus
June 22-July 1, 2019
Learn leadership, live history, explore your nation!
Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a 4-H leadership program for high schoolers aged 15 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, Baltimore, 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.
