Leadership workshop for those working with youth, other groups

Posted Mar 10, 2020 8:25 PM

Each year the NW 4-H Advisory hosts a two-day recreation leadership workshop for those working with youth and other groups.  This year the focus is on the “Team Bonding, Team Building or Team Development?” 

In this workshop, Michelle Cummings will share insights and strategies on how to surface behaviors through play through experiential activities. This high-energy, hands-on workshop will teach participants how to play some of the industry’s best icebreakers, leadership games and unique ways to reflect on what you are learning.

Cummings will engage you physically, intellectually and mentally with lots of opportunity for laughter and learning. Attendees will discover how powerful the impact of the value of connection, leadership, and purposeful play have on the participants in your programs.

Day 1 is designed for school teams (FFA, FCCLA, KAY, DECA, etc.), 7th – 12th grade, adult sponsors, staff and volunteers who work with groups of people routinely. 

Day 2 is a completely different session, so plan to come for one, the other or both days.

Registration is due Wednesday, March 25.  https://cottonwood.k-state.edu/ellis-county4h/4-hevents/nw4hevents/NWTeamBuilding2020.pdf

Please help us get the word out to others who might put this opportunity to good use and come and join us for one or both days.  It will be engaging, high energy and a great learning opportunity.

For more information contact Susan Schlichting, Cottonwood District Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development at 785-628-9430.
