Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a citizenship program conducted by the National 4-H Council (Council) for high school youth. During the summer, delegations of 14-19 year-olds from across the country attend this five-day program at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda just outside Washington, D.C. This program gives participants hands-on opportunities to learn and practice skills that promote “Better Citizens Today, Better Leaders Tomorrow”. Participants learn by attending workshops, committees, field trips, and social events.
The program objectives include; strengthening communication, leadership, and other citizenship skills on a national level; understanding the importance of civic and social responsibilities as they relate to the development of better citizens and leaders; exchanging ideas, practicing respect, and forming friendships with other youth from diverse backgrounds; and experience hands-on learning using the historical backdrop of our nation's Capital City, Washington, D.C.
The deadline to submit applications is Monday, October 3, 2022
