In partnership with our national non-profit partner, States’ 4-H International, the Ohio 4-H Program has made the difficult decision to cancel all 2020 International Inbound hosting and Outbound travel programs this summer. This determination is a result of months of communication and collaboration among program partners. The decision aligns with the travel guidance provided by the CDC and State Department, yet most importantly, it fully prioritizes the health and safety of our delegates, host families, and chaperones. This includes the LABO exchange with Japan.
In addition to our international exchange program with State’ 4-H International, no other international or domestic 4-H trips or exchanges will take place this summer (between now and the end of August). This includes any county or club-level exchange trips with other states.
