4-H Day of Service
Demonstrating citizenship through community action is one of the primary mission mandates of the National 4-H Program. Like all 4-H programs nationwide, the Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia 4-H programs want to challenge our 4-H members with "call to community action" this October. We are focusing the entire month on civic engagement and encourage 4-H members to take part on or around October 12, 2013. During this day, and throughtout the month, 4-H Youth Development programs across the country are asked to work on making a positive impact in their communities. Counties and clubs are asked to design programs that best fit their needs while contributing to the over spirit of making a difference!
To help provide focus, this year we have selected the theme of "Serving Those Who Serve Us". We ask our 4-H members, their clubs and their communties to reach out to those organizations, groups and individuals such as firemen, EMS workers, police officers, military personnel or any others that help make a difference in our lives.
Participating individuals and groups are asked to complete an event report by the end of October about how they made a difference in their community. Comments and ideas will be used to further develop tools to "make the best better" for the future civic engagement days!
Individual, Club or County Participation
Individuals, Clubs and Counties are invited to record their personal participation story at the following link. Even though your state may have selected a specific day in October for this program, please share any civic engagement activities you did in October in the spirit of "making a difference"! Feel free to submit multiple reports if you did more than one project. Great job! See the report form at the top of the page!
