Johnson Juniors 4-H Club members have some of their fair projects on display at the Akron Public Library until Aug. 24.
The goal of 4-H is to develop citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills of youth through experiential learning programs and a positive youth development approach. Though typically thought of as an agriculturally focused organization as a result of its history, 4-H today focuses on citizenship, healthy living, science, engineering, and technology programs. The young people of Johnson Juniors, under the direction of their leaders Barb Foley, Colleen Westergard, Dee Meerdink, Chris and Joni Vondrak, Roxanne Hoffman and Brad Harvey, have some wonderful projects to share.
Stop by the Akron library and see what these amazing kids have done. Turning ideas into action, along with the work of caring mentors, 4-H youth are becoming everyday heroes who persevere through challenges to leave lasting, positive impacts on their communities.
