CHARACTER COUNTS! in 4-H Youth Development Webinar
May 12, 2015, 10-11:30 am CST
Presented by: Rachelle Vettern and Katie Tyler           

CHARACTER COUNTS!SM is a program to strengthen the character of today’s youth and adults. It is built on the consensus that no matter how diverse our opinions, personalities and backgrounds, there are ethical principles that clearly define us at our best. CHARACTER COUNTS!(CC!)  teaches the 6 pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. These principles are important because they are the foundation of the participation expectations for youth and adults involved in ND 4-H youth development. This webinar will focus on how to assist 4-H leaders, 4-H parents, 4-H camp chairs, and Extension staff in incorporating CC! into your 4-H program and 4-H camp settings. Details to follow with registration instructions by May 1, 2015. If you have questions please e-mailRachelle Vettern or Katie Tyler.
