4-H Teen Teacher Corps
Our new 4-H Teen Teacher Corps is now taking applications for our Fall 2020 training cohort. 4-H Teen Teacher Corps members undergo a 25 hour training in the fall and are then placed in a community site where they help coach, teach, and mentor younger youth in one of three topic areas:
- Agriculture and Food Systems
- Cooking, Nutrition and Food Security
- Entrepreneurship and Community Engagement.
The 4-H Teen Teacher Corps program is designed to give teens the opportunity to give back to their community, learn important job skills, explore career paths and earn a small stipend. Now more than ever youth voice and youth action is needed in our communities to help find solutions to community problems.
Corps members strengthen communities one community at a time and develop leadership skills through direct, team-based service. 4-H Teen Corps help create a stronger future for our communities by mentoring younger youth in healthy food and healthy living.
