4-H Workshop


4-H is the youth development program of our nations Cooperative Extension System, locally
brought to you by Michigan State University Extension. We teamed up with 4-H youth counselor
Christy Hicks to create a workshop for the members of the Green Tops 4-H Club, 4-H Youth Leadership Institute, and the Ortonville Entrepreneurship Explosion.  This workshop was designed to immerse our4-H’ers in all things business; participants networked with one another, met with professionals in the fields of business, robotics, video and music production, and studied the importance of setting and sticking with their goals and ambitions.
We at NextWave enjoyed their energy so much that we have continued to maintain a monthly
4-H workshop to allow the  group to imagine, create and execute ideas using their skills.
