Generosity through Service
One of the four essential elements of 4-H Youth Development is Generosity. (The other three are Independence, Mastery, and Belonging.) Through our Countywide Service-Learning Project one of our goals is to provide opportunities for youth to give back to others an their community, or in other words, be generous. In order to truly learn from service an individual needs to develop empathy—the notion of putting yourself in someone’s else’s shoes. In that spirit, we’re planning a hunger simulation for our January 21 Annual Leaders Training. Come join us to learn more about the need for backpack meals in Buffalo County and the daily decisions of those living food insecure.
