4-H clover Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF)

Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a 4-H leadership program for high school youth. Every summer teens from across the country gather at the National 4-H Conference Center, near Washington, D.C., to learn what it means to be a strong leader in their community, country, and world.  These objectives are met through pre-trip education, speakers, workshops, daily excursions to view National sites, day at the Capitol with elected officials, and a delegate designed and implemented action plan.

This experience is open to youth who are at least 15,  not older than 19 years of age, and finished with their first year of high school at the time of travel (late June). Participants must be enrolled in Minnesota 4-H. Approximately 45 teens from Minnesota will attend. This trip is first come, first serve, and spaces usually fill quickly, however, if a trip does not receive enough participants, it will be canceled.

Minnesota 4-H will attend CWF June 19-24, 2022, not including travel dates. Additional information about this year’s experience is available in the dropdowns below.
