Through Citizenship Washington Focus, teens experience Washington, D.C. like never before. Using the nation’s capital as their classroom, CWF connects young leaders from across the country to gain the skills and experiences to become effective change agents.
Participants must be ages 14-19, and a current 4-H member and maintain active membership in 4-H through the conference year. Once all spots have filled, the remaining who signed up will be put on an alternate list. The alternate list will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The cost of the trip is $2,500 per participant. The $2,500 is the responsibility of the participating youth delegate to pay in full by April 30, 2023. There will be a down payment requirement of $300 due when signing up for a spot in the CWF2023 experience. Youth delegates are encouraged to work with their 4-H agents to find local sponsors and to fundraise. We will provide several examples of donor solicitation letters.
