4-H International Exchanges Cancelled for 2021

This just in from the State 4-H Office:

After careful consideration, we’re making an early decision and have cancelled all Ohio 4-H in-person international exchanges for 2021, including hosting and traveling. Our international volunteers (ICCs) and all interested participants are receiving this announcement today, as well. Instead, we’ll offer two pen-pal opportunities, a summer “virtual exchange,” and monthly ICC zooms. Info will be announced as it becomes available, and can always be found at Ohio 4-H International Programs. Thank you for your support in identifying terrific volunteers, host families and youth travelers over the years! We look forward to reinstating in-person international exchange programs as soon as it is safe to do so.       Mary Lynn Thalheimer, State Coordinator
