At this workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to explore five competencies for youth leaders in a global world: character, citizenship, creativity, communication and culture.

The workshop instructors are Judy Huynh, Ionia County 4-H Volunteer and Betsy Knox, former Michigan 4-H Program Leader in Global Education, Civic Engagement & Leadership.
