Giving your best webinar series

Make plans to join a FREE, live web-based program designed for 4-H volunteers, leaders, parents and youth development professionals.  Three separate web-based programs are being offered to benefit 4-H volunteers and parents as they enroll in 4-H and work to create an amazing tool to teach their children. 4-H projects provide endless learning opportunities and help to develop life skills for youth between the ages of 5 and 18.  Learn more about getting the most out of your family’s 4-H experience.

Are you in need of an update to better understand the “new” MyPlate?  Learn how to incorporate the MyPlate into current 4-H projects.  Be prepared to help young people discover their personality, passion and help ignite a potential career interest related to their 4-H projects. Provide fun, developmentally appropriate projects that teach 4-H members and children they babysit.  Explore ways youth can participate in animal science projects without showing a live animal.

Register online at:  Once you are registered you will receive an email with the webinar link and additional information related to each program.  Participate from your OWN home or anywhere you have access to the internet.  Each program will meet on-line for one hour to help connect parents and volunteers to pertinent youth development knowledge.

Choose to participate in one or all of 3-different web-based programs on the following dates from Noon to 1:00 p.m. CST or from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. CST.
