Clover Speak

If you want to learn more about creating interesting and interactive learning environments while improving your confidence and skills in the areas of presentations and facilitation, then the Clover Speak program is for you! Clover Speak is an intensive, year-long training program funded by the Juanita H. Fasola Foundation. The Foundation offers funding for educational training programs for youth and young adults in life skills and home economics. Clover Speak participants learn valuable public speaking skills, teaching and training techniques, and youth development knowledge that they take back to their respective counties to better assist their 4-H agents with club meetings, project groups, judging teams, and other programs. The program is open to 4-H program assistants, 4-H adult volunteer leaders, and 4-H teen leaders in the ninth through twelfth grades. To learn more, please contact Lori Gallimore.
