Leadership Washington Focus - Contact the 4-H Office for more information and applications
The 4th Annual Leadership Washington Focus (LWF) will be held July 17-21, 2017 at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase Maryland. There will be 4-H members representing several states across the nation at Leadership Washington Focus. LWF is a 4-day event (Monday-Friday) for 4-H members in grades 6-8 at the time of application. The program will provide an opportunity for youth to listen to motivational speakers and participate in workshops that will develop communication skills, increase leadership capacity and build lifetime skills. The program utilizes Washington, D.C. as a working classroom to learn about leadership and provides hands-on opportunities for our younger teens to promote “Learn to Lead Now - Better Leaders Tomorrow."
Activities during the 4-day conference will help delegates to:
·Build confidence in their ability to motivate and direct others in meaningful action.
·Practice effective communication with others through group discussion and public speaking.
·Work with others to create and accomplish goals.
·Develop an understanding of leadership styles and identify personal style.
·Exchange ideas, practice respect and form friendships with other 4-H'ers from across the nation.
·Visit some of D.C.'s most spectacular sights and learn about the different types of leadership conveyed through the symbolism of our national monuments and memorials.
