Two times more likely to pursue healthy behaviors, and Two times more likely to engage in science, technology, engineering and math programs in the out-ofschool time. Also during National 4-H Week, hundreds of thousands of youth from all around the nation will complete a single, innovative experiment on 4-H National Youth Science Day, this year set for Wednesday, Oct. 9. The 2013 National Science Experiment, 4-H Maps & Apps, will introduce youth to the importance of geographic information systems and geographic positioning systems as they design and map their ideal park, use mapping to solve community problems and contribute data to the U.S. Geological Surveys The National Map program as citizen scientists through The National Map Corps project. 4-H, the largest youth development organization in the world, is a community of 7 million young people across the globe learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. In the United States, 4-H programs are implemented by the 109 land grant universities and the Cooperative Extension System through their 3,100 local extension offices across the country. Overseas, 4-H programs operate throughout more than 50 countries.

The 4-Hs

One of the first things I did as a 4-H summer intern was call a bunch of people Id never met and ask them to volunteer as assistants for project judging at the county fair. The long list of spots to fill made it immediately evident 4-H is an organization built by volunteer power. It runs on middle school kids who give up a goofing around with friends to lead day camps and parents who take vacation days from work to support the poultry project. Volunteers rock. However, I think National 4-H Week is an opportune time for volunteers to in turn recognize outstanding staff members who keep things together behind the scenes. There are the 4-H administrative assistants

Celebrate National 4-H Week by thanking a 4-H staff member

like Jan, who was working at Wright County when I started interning. She kept all the 4-H show programs for county fair in meticulous order and was sure to send information to the local paper. And when she was brewing herself a cup of tea in the break room, sometimes shed make me one too, just because she knew it would brighten my day. Or Tarah, who had to enter a humongous stack of entry forms into a special software program that would spit out county fair project tags, many of which would be discarded by kids. Meanwhile, someone would walk in with a weird bug in a container to pass along to the master gardener in the office. Tarah wouldnt miss a beat, sticking in the insect in our tiny fridge to hang out with everyones lunch. And then theres my mother-in-law, who was an administrative assistant when teenage me was bouncing off the walls in the McLeod County Extension Office, pretending to answer the phones and date stamping my hands while waiting for a meeting to start or a van to leave. She never tossed me out on my ear, even when I obviously had too much energy. These days, I get to work with Staci, who, when she is wildly busy, still takes time to help me with my own deadlines by identifying smiling 4-H members in photos and corralling information. Putting in some of the craziest hours are 4-H program coordinators. Growing up, that was Bernie. In addition to her regular duties, Bernie recruited for and helped coach our general livestock judging team, spending summer evenings and weekends in hog barns and cattle pastures. When the team won a trip to nationals, she fundraised. When Goldfish crackers appeared in the county van air vents, she tried not to notice. Before competition, she wrote personal notes in the front of our judging notebooks. She expected a lot of us, and we grew up to meet the challenge. When she quit her PC job to work at the University of Wisconsin, I was heartbroken. But looking back, she had given more than any of us had a right to ask for. As an intern, my 4-H PC was Katie. Working inside the office, I saw how tough her job was. There are times a PC has to deny a state fair trip for wrongly filed paperwork, times she has to mediate a dispute between club leaders, times she has to listen to a laundry list of gripes that have nothing to do with her the griper just didnt have anywhere else to turn. Still, Katie bubbled with laughter, was infectiously ecstatic about 4-H summer camp and kept her eyes on what was best for youth members. She was my first real boss, and her conduct was a shining example. I also had the pleasure of seeing Jen in action. She was almost a Zen master in the way she managed a dozen elementary school kids all tussling for the same glue and asking questions that had already been answered. And when it was time to take 4-H winner photos at county fair, Jen remained good natured but brisk while lining up tired

4-Hers. Unfortunately, it is easy to burn out on a job requiring such a level of compassion, enthusiasm and diplomacy. As were in the midst of the search for someone to fill the role of 4-H PC for Jackson County, lets remember to support all our 4-H staff. They serve as role models, cheer leaders and educators for many youth in our community. And there are few jobs more important than that.
