WHAT

Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a 4-H leadership and civic engagement program for high school youth. Each summer teens gather at the National 4-H Conference Center to see the sites and learn what it means to be a strong leader in their community, country, and world.  
 

WHEN

Our delegation is scheduled for June 13-19, 2021.  Depending on airfare prices, we may leave a few days early, and/or stay a few days longer.
 

WHY

Participating in CWF is a decades-long tradition in Fremont County.  It is generously supported by the community because of its reputation for influencing youth to be engaged in their communities, their country, and their world.  Most youth who have attended claim it is their very favorite 4-H memory!
