Washington Focus provides opportunities for 4-H youth and adults to acquire and practice citizenship and leadership skills that can be applied to local situations and community projects. Using the nation’s capitol as a resource and classroom, 4-H members gain a greater understanding and appreciation of American history and our system of government. During this program, participants learn how to use new leadership techniques, building upon the dynamics of peer-group influence.
