What happens in other countries and on other continents affects each of us in some way. The world's collective survival depends on awareness of the world and its peoples. The 4-H Global Citizenship program provides opportunities for hands-on learning activities and international exchange experiences that develop awareness of the world and its peoples.
The Oregon 4-H Program provides opportunities for teens and young adults to travel to other countries as participants in host-family based exchange programs. In addition, Oregon hosts young people from other countries for stays ranging from two weeks to ten months. Countries currently involved include: Costa Rica, Finland, Japan, Norway, and South Korea.
