Sustainable Communities Project

Five Harris County Sustainable Communities Project participants attended the District 9 4-H Leadership Adventure Camp in Galveston, TX this summer. Leadership Adventure is a district-wide camp to prepare over 100 4-H students throughout the southeast region with skills to lead and guide their 4-H clubs. During the camp 4-H members engaged in interactive team-building activities to help students practice communication and problem-solving skills. Activities included cardboard box boat building, beach sand castle building, and a community service project at the exciting Moody Garden Pyramids. District 9 4-H Council Elections were also held. Fellow 4-H students were able to hear candidate speeches and vote for the 2016-2017 4-H District 9 Officers.

Harris County students networked with senior 4-H members and gathered helpful material to assist with building strong 4-H programs at Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School and Mickey Leland College Preparatory School for Young Men. We look forward to seeing our Harris County leaders take action this upcoming 4-H year!
