GLOBE -Global Leadership Opportunities Beyond Education – DUE
March 13, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Texas 4-H is excited to announce a NEW 4-H International program! GLOBE – Global Leadership Opportunities Beyond Education! The attached information provides details about this comprehensive two-tiered citizenship and leadership program designed for 4-H members in grades 6-12 (Intermediate and Senior). The program is designed to engage youth to look at their own communities through the eyes of people experiencing hunger and poverty and be inspired to take humanitarian action. As they begin to understand the perspectives of other cultures, they are more likely to have increased respect for those who are different from them.
Tier I begins now and includes youth participating in three webinars followed by an experiential leadership and team building camp at Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas. The camp is June 29 – July 2, 2016. Texas 4-H will partner with Heifer International to create this ‘international experience’ without actually traveling abroad. Registration is limited to 40 youth; the deadline to register on 4-H Connect is March 13. The $350 registration includes travel on chartered bus, all meals and lodging for the four day/3 night experience and a commemorative T-shirt. Texas A&M AgriLife personnel will chaperone the youth.
