A delegation of Franklin County 4-H members attended 4-H Citizenship North Carolina Focus, which was held in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Franklin County delegation returned home from three days in which more than 100 youth and adults representing 34 4-H programs across the state gathered to exchange ideas, gain knowledge and learn through hands-on experiences about the importance of being an active and engaged citizen.

Lance Williams, Mia Clark, Meredith Potter, and Bryson Freed represented Franklin County at the June 14-16 conference. Through various conference sessions and facilitated discussions, delegates learned and shared information related to state government. Delegates also participated in sessions related to youth voice and community change. While at the conference delegates had a chance to visit the Legislative Building in Raleigh to meet with their elected officials and their staff as well as participate in service activities throughout Raleigh.

4-H Citizenship North Carolina Focus is sponsored by NC Electric Cooperatives. 4-H is North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, equipping more than 200,000 young people each year with the skills to succeed and improve the world around them. 4-H programs and camps encourage young people to “learn by doing,” helping them to develop into active, contributing citizens. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinate 4-H programs statewide.

NC State Extension is the local and statewide outreach provider of North Carolina’s preeminent research enterprise – NC State University. NC State Extension translates research-based knowledge in the areas of agriculture, food and nutrition, and 4-H youth development into everyday solutions that create economic, intellectual and societal prosperity for North Carolina.
