We are excited to announce that there will be a third youth 4-H Cultural Immersion Project experience to Puerto Rico from November 23 – December 1, 2021.
There is a preliminary application for you to share with your youth (see below). There will be a follow up applicant zoom interview before selecting participants. State Contact (Steve Brady) will also contact the applicant’s county 4-H Educator for a reference. The experience is for 4-H youth ages 15-19. The cost is $500 plus airfare (approx.. $600). We will be staying in two locations – Castaner – a small mountain town in the center of the island and San Juan. Additionally, Fairfield County 4-H Advisory Committee is willing to support youth who pursue international experiences! Once accepted, contact Leslie or Aubry to make a presentation to the 4-H Advisory Committee to request a scholarship to assist you financially.
One of our goals is to join 4-H youth from Puerto Rico for several service projects and local events. Please reach out to your 4-H members who would benefit from an experience like this one. Contact me if you would like further information.
