Teen Interest Inventory

If you are a Licking County 4-H member who will be 4-H age 14-18 in 2020, you should have received an email that invited you to complete the Teen Interest Inventory. In case the email didn’t make it to you, here is another chance for you to complete the Teen Interest Inventory.

We have many exciting opportunities available specifically for teens for the 2020 4-H year. Since most clubs don’t meet much, if at all, during the fall and winter, it can be easy to miss deadlines. To help you keep up on these opportunities, we ask that you please complete the Teen Interest Inventory. By completing the Teen Interest Inventory, it let’s us know which opportunities that you are interested in so that we can send you the information specific to those opportunities when it becomes available. For instance, if you mark that you are interested in becoming a camp counselor, we will send you a link to the application along with other information once it becomes available so that you don’t miss the chance to apply! This interest inventory is not a commitment to applying for the opportunities you select, it is just a way to let us know to send you more information.

In the past, we’ve sent out a paper that we asked to fill out and send back in. To make it easier this year, we’re doing an online survey. You can easily fill it out in just a few minutes from a computer or mobile device and you don’t have to worry about getting the form back to us!

The teen opportunities are listed below. Once you have reviewed them and know which ones you are interested in, please follow this link to complete the survey: https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_efGY3vSXCfvJuIdPlease complete the survey before it closes on Monday, September 30, 2019.
