Do you know a 4-H’er who has a passion for government, history, political science, working with youth, public speaking, or leadership? If so, encourage them to apply for the position of Program Assistant (PA) at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center!
Application deadlines are approaching soon and we want to give 4-H alumni and collegiate 4-Hers an opportunity to make a difference during their spring or summer semester. Our PAs will be touching the lives of thousands of middle and high school-aged students from all over the United States while working for our Wonders of Washington (WOW) or Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) program in Washington, D.C.
The Wonders of Washington program gives young people the chance to explore, develop, and refine the skills necessary to become outstanding citizens and leaders in their home communities. Using the living classroom of Washington, D.C., Program Assistants teach about the history of our nation, its various leaders, and how youth can put their skills of leadership and citizenship into use when they return home.
Citizenship Washington Focus gives 4-H’ers the opportunity to strengthen their communication, leadership, and citizenship skills on a national level. Program Assistants will lead 1,500+ 4-H’ers at Citizenship Washington Focus. By facilitating hands-on activities, simulations, and tours of various monuments and memorials, 4-H participants discover what citizenship means to them and develop action plans to make a difference in their communities. CWF Program Assistants help create, develop, and facilitate curriculum to be used during the 2014 program.
We are looking for individuals with a high school diploma (preferably some college experience) and a passion for one of the following areas: youth development, hospitality, teaching, history, politics, or leadership. If you know a college student looking for an internship or credit towards graduation, please share this information as well.
