    SD 4-H Teens as Teachers

    Yankton County would like to have a 4-H Teens as Teachers team. We need 2 to 8 teens (in grades 10-12) who would be interested in working together to learn a specific programming curriculum and then take this curriculum to another audience (K-6th youth or adults 50+) where the teens would act as the teachers and teach the curriculum. Let us know by March 16th if you are interested.

    By completing specific requirements, teens are eligible to apply for a Teens As Teachers scholarship through the SD 4-H Foundation to be used at the post-secondary institution of their choice.

    SD 4-H: Opportunity to Apply for Healthy Living Youth Council – Due Feb 9

    Dear 4-H Families:

    Preparing young people to become thriving and contributing adults in our communities will always be the mission of the South Dakota Youth Foundation.  For this reason, the foundation has partnered its efforts with South Dakota business, industry, agency, and community leaders so that they may align their efforts in order to help South Dakota youth feel and be personally impacted by change.  We will be working with youth organizations across the state to bring this vision forward.

    We are proud to announce the formation of a South Dakota Healthy Living Youth Council.  This council of youth will be selected and paired with professional mentors from across the state to lead a Healthy Living Youth Initiative in order to plan and carry out Healthy Living Youth Summits in the Fall of 2015.  We are requesting your assistance in recruiting teens that may be interested in serving.  All youth interested in applying for the council need to have applications postmarked no later than February 9, 2015.

     http://www.yankton4h.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/South-Dakota-Healthy-Living-Youth-Council-Application-Due-Feb-9th.pdf

    All youth entering grades 11-12 in the 2015-2016 school year are eligible to apply.  Selected council youth will need to be prepared to attend a council training on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 in Pierre at Avera/St. Mary’s Hospital.

    We look forward to working with you and are excited about the opportunities ahead!  Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.

     

    Sincerely,
