4H Youth Development
In light of the recent COVID-19 on our island, the Guam 4-H Youth Development program would like to share the link below from Washington State University 4H program. These are activities that might be useful to parents and families during the school and work closure. These activities are not only for filling in the gaps, but rather, promote life-long learning skills along with positive family dynamics.
The mission of 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is carried out through the involvement of parents, volunteer leaders and other adults who organize and conduct educational subject/project experiences in community and family settings. These “Learn-by-Doing” experiences are supported by research and extension functions represented by the land-grant universities, USDA and cooperating local governments with support from the National 4-H Council and other private support.
This program provides youth with an opportunity to be right and responsible members in the community to contribute in shaping the world around them and providing service to others. Through this program you will learn to explore relationships with peers, their families, their island and the world.
This program will offer basic understanding of keeping kids healthy. Children, like adults, sometimes make bad decisions about their health. They may skip breakfast, drink soda all day. Some children damage their health by using tobacco, alcohol, or other drugs.
This program will give a brief history of the different handicrafts throughout the Pacific and the western world. Different materials and mediums will be utilized to inspire their creativity and imagination for arts and crafts.
