White House Champions of Change - Future Leaders: 4-H and Future Farmers of America
The White House Champions of Change program highlights the stories and examples of citizens across the country who are “Winning the Future” with projects and initiatives that move their communities forward. Each week, the Office of Public Engagement (OPE) hosts an event to honor those who are working to empower and inspire other members of their communities. Agency representatives and White House Policy Offices participate in the events and host discussions on amplifying best practices learned in each area.
This September, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Office of Public Engagement will welcome 4-H and FFA members and their mentors to the White House to recognize the exceptional ways they are impacting their communities.
For example, a Champion’s work may entail:
- Pursuing innovative projects in agriculture, science, healthy living, community service
- Empowering communities to involve youth as partners in decision-making and governance
- Improving the quality of afterschool programs
- Developing and implementing physical health, nutrition, and other hands-on, interactive programs
- Researching innovative solutions to environmental or hunger issues
- Working in partnership with adults to improve the lives of members in their communities
- Starting a small business
