Calling all 4-H leaders and parents with international background

4-H is looking for leaders or parents that have moved here to the US that would be interested in sharing their culture with 4-H'ers and families. It’s called: "An Evening Abroad" and it would be on Zoom once a month for maybe an hour. Perhaps we will travel to England for an evening one month, then jet to Jamaica the next. Perhaps Japan awaits us before we stop over to India. There’s a world of culture right here in NJ 4-H and we want to show it all the love! We would ask that they perhaps share pictures and tell some fairy tales/legends/stories or make a simple dish we can all prepare in our kitchens together, or even music and dance to inspire us to get moving; we want to travel the world together to appreciate and learn about different cultures. Will we kiss the Blarney Stone, or visit the Wailing Wall? Perhaps we’ll traverse the Great Wall or go Down Under…. We can’t wait to see where NJ 4-H takes us!

December 4 @ 11-3, Roxbury Library

Visit the 4-H table inside the Roxbury Library on December 4th between 11am and 3pm at "Home for the Holidays". This event will offer lots of fun for the entire family. Activities will be inside the library as well as the two churches next door. For more and updated details check here.

4-H and NJCEE are happy to provide you with resources and support so you can learn about interesting financial literacy concepts successfully.

We’ll wrap up with a Kahoot that will test your knowledge about financial literacy and offer prizes to the top three youth with the most points!

Make friends across the state of NJ! We meet on the third Thursday of every month over Zoom." Click here to register.

Teens are tomorrow’s leaders, but have the potential for leading TODAY. Join us on a free journey to Russia! We’ll be meeting teens from Russia who have the same concerns about the world as you.
