4-H Global Citizenship Program - Overview

Japanese delegate and American host sibling in Kimonos

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.

4-H International Exchange Programs

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.
