4-H Urban Exchange
3880 SE 8th Avenue, #170-180
Portland, OR 97202
In cooperation with 4-H County programs in Eastern Oregon and Portland 4-H, the 4-H Urban Exchange is designed to help youth gain an understanding of natural resource management issues from both an urban and rural Oregon perspective. The exchange is also designed to help youth develop a camaraderie and spirit of friendship with families from urban Oregon who are involved in natural resource management.
Participating youth will have the chance to live and work and attend school with urban Portland youth and learn how Oregonians in the urban areas are working to balance social, economic and environmental needs for building a sustainable Oregon. This exchange will include a host family stay; tours of Portland on foot, bike, trains and trams; and a day attending a local urban school.
