On June 20, the Minnesota 4-H Foundation will hold its 18th annual golf classic for Minnesota 4-H. The fun summer event raises funds that support 4-H programming across the state throughout the year. I volunteer at the event each year, and am always inspired by the generosity and passion for 4-H that is shown by our partners and supporters.
The highlight each year for the golfers is the groups of youth stationed at each of the holes with their 4-H projects, eager to talk with the golfers about how 4-H is making an impact in their lives.
The Foundation is currently looking for 4-H’ers to participate at the golf event. Please contact Erin Kelly-Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-624-7667 by May 31 if you have youth who might be interested.
Giving youth opportunities to tell their stories is one of the most powerful ways to show the impact of 4-H to our supporters, and help them see the potential results of their contributions. I encourage you to find ways to help 4-H youth share their stories with key audiences in your communities throughout the year.
