Global Connections Project

Lessons on global citizenship are as close by as the local grocery store, library, highway or high school. Join other youth to talk about world issues and global situations. Explore language, family traditions, culture, global connectedness, genealogy, and concerns of other young people. Discover how you can make a difference in your community and your world.

Intrastate and interstate exchanges

Small groups of youth explore communities in Minnesota or other states in these hands-on learning trips. The intrastate/interstate experiences are usually 7- to 10-day visits to another county with planned activities by the 4-H clubs in the area, including a home stay with a 4-H family. These visits enhance the youth's sense of discovery and provide first-hand experience of how youth and families live and work in other communities. Youth experience the differences and similarities in America and Americans-both geographic and ethnic.
