Educational Travel Experiences

Get Involved!

Educational Travel Experiences provide opportunities for youth to learn skills and meet new people from beyond the club/county level. Whether you’re interested in developing project-related skills, expanding your leadership abilities, exploring civic engagement, learning about the government, discovering national history or becoming involved in 4-H at a state, national or even international level – there’s an opportunity for you!  Traveling with and meeting other 4-Hers is a wonderful Educational Experience that you do not want to miss! Check out the opportunities below.
