Global & Cultural Education
Curious how people in different countries live?
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
