As we start the new 4-H year, there are lots of opportunities for volunteer training. Take advantage to add to your "tool box" and help youth find their spark!

"Just help them get started."  A mantra for all youth workers! Maybe the follow up to that should be: "Then get out of the way." Good advice. Both. Tally ho!

As of Monday, October 10th, we STILL don't have at least 5 FIRM RSVP's for at least 1 specific Lincoln-Adams 4-H 101 Leader Training Part 2 session from people who have submitted 4-H Volunteer Applications !

4-H volunteers MUST be screened, trained, and certified to work with youth in the 4-H program!  The 4-H faculty who provide the training have many other responsibilities and large geographical areas to cover. So in order to confirm one or more of the following possible dates, we MUST have at least 5 RSVPs to hold a specific session!

The SOONER we get official direct RSVP's from people with 4-H Volunteer Applications on file, the sooner we will select the final date(s) and location(s)!!

The GOOD NEWS!

Know Your Government 2017

Pursuing Justice: The Judicial System

Olympia, WA Conference
February 18-21, 2017

Know Your Government (KYG) is a civic education program with a four-year rotating topic:  The Legislative System, The Judicial System, Elections and Party Platforms, and Politics and the Media. This year we will explore the topic of the Judicial System. It is important to remember though, that KYG is much more than learning about the topic for the year.  Mostly  KYG and 4-H are about learning the life skills our delegates will need to be responsible citizens and productive adults.  The conference is an opportunity for delegates, 14 to 18 years old, to practice the skills they have learned, apply their knowledge to unknown situations and reflect on how they did.

The KYG Program includes pre-conference meetings!

Purpose: teach the skills, provide the tools, and prepare for the project at the KYG Conference.

Participants will learn how to work as part of a team, with people they may or may not know, to get the pre-conference objectives completed.  Adult coordinators and chaperone(s) are necessary in order to conduct the county-wide (or bi-county-wide) program. KYG coordinators and chaperones MUST be certified, enrolled, 4-H volunteers or willing to BECOME certified & enrolled. Specific KYG Orientation will be held at the Leaders Forum  in Pasco on October 22nd.  

More information on: http://extension.wsu.edu/4h/youth/kyg/
Any interested Lincoln or (East Adams) County adults or 14 - 18 year old youth (as of Oct. 1, 2016) should contact Randy Williams at randy.williams@wsu.edu (509)725-4171 Ext. 19  Cell # (509)869-1818
