4-H Teen Leader

The Problem

The youth throughout Martinsville and Henry County are who we affect. There is a lot of negativity around the community through job loss and teenage pregnancy. 4-H provides a club where children can develop into productive citizens.

Plan of Action

We have monthly meetings that plan activities that will improve the lives of youngsters. We train so that we can handle whatever situation that could possibly arise. I have been a camp counselor for 5 years and have seen the impact 4-H camp has made on them. When we deal with homesick campers we try our best to get them involved and deter their mind from parents and home. At the end of the week it is a very fulfilling feeling when you see the smile on that child's face. They made it a whole week away from home, while having a great time.
