Global & Cultural Education
Helping young people to explore and to appreciate what people around the world have in common and what makes them unique is critically important in society today. Michigan 4-H offers a variety of opportunities for kids and adults to learn more about our global community through:
- The 4-H China Project
- 4-H International Exchange Programs
- 4-H Backpack to Adventure: Youth Leaders in a Global World
- Global Youth Institute
“The challenges that face the world today – from global poverty and climate change to financial systems and conflict – require globally minded solutions. Global competency skills are necessary so that young people can invent a future that appropriately addresses global challenges.”
– van Fleet & Winthrop, 2010
