Curious how people in different countries live?

Girl with China Art projectHelping 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. In some cases, that perspective is gained through activities or projects that include art, reading, writing letters, reports, presentations, displays or simply talking to their own family members. In other cases, it is gained through actually traveling to a different state or to other countries such as Belize, Poland or Japan.

Michigan 4-H global and cultural education programs include:

“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
