The first page provides an overview of the topic, a sample agenda and resources to put ideas into action. The second page provides in-depth explanations and specific strategies.

Each agenda highlights how to adapt in-person 4-H activities to a virtual setting.

Clubs may discover creative solutions that remain part of their club tradition for years to come. Visit Ohio 4-H’s Stay Connected page for more resources.
