4-H Junior Leaders explore the facility at Connersville

Connersville hosts charity on a mission to bring opportunity to young people.

4-H is a charity delivering research-based programming around positive youth development to young people across America. The Bright Futures team in Connersville recently invited a group of 4-H’s ‘Junior Leaders’ to visit the factory for their monthly meeting. 

As the theme of their meeting was ‘career readiness’, the Connersville Bright Futures team put together a presentation on what they do, how it works and where it is used, before leading the group on a tour of the facility. The visit ended with a lively question and answer session during which the group were so engaged. “The look of awe on the kids’ faces, when they saw some of the products we make, was a reminder of how unique our jobs are,” said one of the employee volunteers who helped put together the event. In total, nine employee volunteers contributed to the success of this event, many of whom were 4-H alumni themselves.

The similarities between our values and the 4-H values make this an exciting partnership for our Bright Futures Programme. Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four values that 4-H centres around. Head symbolises decision making, problem solving, and organising. Heart represents strong personal values and cooperation. Hands symbolise science, technology, and useful skills. And finally, Health stands for leading a healthy lifestyle, practising safe behaviours, and managing stress. 

My child loved the visit to Howden. It really opened her eyes to job opportunities that she never knew existed.  She came home all excited about a possible internship when she gets into High School or beyond.
