Celebrating the generosity of youth
Have you seen the phrase “BIG M” on newer 4-H materials? It is an acronym for the essential elements of positive youth development – belonging, independence, generosity and mastery – that we strive to provide in 4-H programs. Recently, Bureau County youth have been spending a lot of time on the “generosity” part.
Last Saturday, youth from across Bureau County gathered for our annual 4-H Holiday Gift Workshop. Youth spent the morning creating gifts to give to family and friends this holiday season. They worked on several projects and designed each one for the intended recipient.
That afternoon, 4-H Federation completed their winter service project. The group contacted local agencies that serve needy families and found out what types of items were most needed. They made a plan of what they could do to help each agency. The group provided toys for local toy drives, as well as coats, hats and gloves for the food pantry.
