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.
