My Green Brain has enjoyed researching information on the extensive 4-H organization website. I am gathering facts to prepare and customize my What Color Is Your “Leadership” Brain?® Keynote presentation for the Western 4‐H Institute 2018, on Monday, February 5th.
“Since 4‑H began more than 100 years ago, it has become the nation’s largest youth development organization. The 4‑H idea is simple: help young people and their families gain the skills needed to be proactive forces in their communities and develop ideas for a more innovative economy.”
Enjoy watching the 4-H History video. My Green Brain has learned that 4-H is so much more than people think. It is not just about agricultural education. Read more on the 4-H website to gain a unique insight into an organization that is offering impressive Blue Collaborative experiences and Orange hands-on activities that teach valuable 4-H Life Skills to their young members.
I think youngsters and adults benefit from learning and practicing the worthwhile Yellow, Blue, Green, and Orange Brain 4-H Life Skills, which can also be taught, transferred, and applied in their homes, workplaces, schools, and communities, even if they are not involved in a 4-H club.
