Citizenship Washington Focus
National Leadership Workshop
Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is an annual trip offered to senior 4-H youth (Ages 14-19) to visit Washington D.C. for one week while improving their leadership skills and talents. While in D.C. the delegates will get a behind-the-scenes look at our nations capital, they will meet members of Congress, develop communication, leadership & citizenship skills, and leave Washington D.C. with a new sense of confidence.
The Arkansas 4-H youth delegation of Citizenship Washington Focus meet with Senator Tom Cotton in Washington D.C. on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building.
While attending the CWF experience, the Arkansas delegates will engage in workshops with 4-H youth from other states. Workshops include:
