Helping Youth Thrive through a Computer Science Lens from 4-H National Council

February 27, 2024

Build your capacity to help youth thrive with positive youth development through the lens of a computer science (CS) pathway. Discover how an exploratory computer science activity can catalyze youth to nurture sparks, find belonging, build relationships and find their voice. In this virtual session, participants will learn how to apply the foundations of the 4-H Thriving model more broadly to 4-H programs and get a feel for the CS activities developed for Clover by 4-H.

The 4-H PYD Academy equips other youth development professionals with the essential knowledge and skills to plan, implement, and evaluate high-quality youth development programs that help youth thrive. The National 4-H PYD Academies are convened and supported by National 4-H Council in cooperation with the National Association of 4-H Youth Development Professionals (NAE4-HYDP), the 4-H PLWG Chartered Committee on Positive Youth Development, and Extension 4-H professionals from across the country. The purpose of the PYD Academy is to ensure that 4-H educators possess the knowledge and skills they need to plan, implement and evaluate high quality 4-H Positive Youth Development programs for youth.

The cost to attend the Helping Youth Thrive through a Computer Science Lens virtual event on April 10, 2024 is $75.
