Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a week-long 4-H citizenship program for youth ages 14-19. Thousands of young people from across America stay at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center, near Washington, D.C., every summer to participate in the program, which provides opportunities for young people to:
• Strengthen their communication, leadership, and citizenship skills on a national level.
• Understand the importance of civic and social responsibilities as they relate to the development of better citizens and leaders.
• Exchange ideas, practice respect, and form friendships with other 4-Hers from across the country with diverse backgrounds.
• Experience hands-on learning using the historical classroom of our nation’s Capital city, Washington, D.C.
This summer, there are almost 1500 young people participating in the CWF program.
