About the Project
The objective of the Using Youth Voice project is to create a series of mechanisms to give youth a vehicle for sharing their ideas for transforming NYS 4-H into an antiracist organization.
These are the mechanisms being used:
In Their Own Words: Youth will be invited to be guest columnists in newsletters to share their ideas.
Where Are They Now?: interviews with 4-H alumni will be conducted to give these young people an opportunity to reflect on what helped them most to be successful in 4-H and what recommendations they have for transforming 4-H into an inclusive organization.
Youth Voice: A series of podcasts featuring interviews with 4-H alumni, current 4-H’ers, and community members to share what they believe is needed to happen to transform 4-H into a respected antiracist organization.
