Experiencing Citizenship, hosted by the Oregon 4-H Program, is a state-wide event for young people (ages 13-18) to share ideas, have fun, do community service, think critically, apply new social media in civic engagement and more! Teen facilitators at Experiencing Citizenship will lead ten Issue Groups to address questions that Oregon agencies are concerned about. Issue Groups will create responses and presentations for those agencies. During one day at the Oregon State Capitol building teen participants will talk to decision-makers, take photos, and ask questions during tours and workshops there. And most of all, teens will decide how to use Experiencing Citizenship back home.
Experiencing Citizenship will be held at the Salem Convention Center and Salem Grand Hotel (201 Liberty St. SE, Salem, OR 97301). This facility was previously named: The Phoenix Grand.
ALL Youth and Adult Participants, please complete and submit all the registration forms listed below NO LATER THAN Sunday March 1, 2015. Late fee of $20 applies between March 2nd and 4th.
