Event information

Date

Add to Calendar 2022-12-08 18:30:00 2022-12-08 20:00:00 Minnesota 4-H volunteer development: Building resilience in rural youth Rural communities and families may be affected by a range of unique stressors, including a weak agricultural economy, population loss, healthcare and daycare shortages, and isolation. Addressing rural and farm stress cannot ignore young people who are more aware of and impacted by the family stress than we sometimes imagine. They are worried about their parents, anxious about family finances and health, and unsure of their own future livelihoods.  Join Minnesota 4-H youth development Extension educators Aly Kloeckner (Goodhue County) and Becca Turnquist (Swift County) on Thursday, Dec. 8 from 6:30-8 p.m. to learn how to recognize the signs of stress and build skills to support young people experiencing rural stress-related challenges. This 90-minute training is open to Minnesota 4-H volunteers, potential volunteers and youth leaders as part of our 2022-2023 statewide volunteer development webinar program.  This webinar program builds upon the 4-H Thriving Model concepts of growth mindset and openness to challenge/discovery covered in our 2022 Minnesota 4-H Annual Volunteer Training.
