National Youth Summit on Healthy Living

National 4-H Council and National 4-H Youth Conference Center have partnered together with professionals in family consumer science and healthy living to host the National Youth Summit on Healthy Living. Our mission is to engage youth through high quality curriculum and give them the educational tools and skills to help their neighbors and future generations live healthier lives.

This opportunity is available for high school students who are passionate about healthy living and developing strategic action plans on a local and national level. Youth can participate individually or as a team with at least one adult mentor/chaperone. There should be at least one chaperone for every eight youth participants. Youth interested in attending National Youth Summit on Healthy Living should contact leaders in their school, club, scout troop, religious organization or parent to identify an adult to register and accompany them at the event. Adult chaperones and mentors are able to register their youth team today. 4-H Teens contact Sandy Corridon at the State 4-H Office if you are interested.  Scholarships are available to 4-H Teens who are currently or are interested in becoming 4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors!

It's four days of hands-on learning, exciting sessions led by passionate healthy living experts, interactive workshops, supplemental curriculum and tools, tours of healthy living advocacy agencies in Washington, DC, hotel accommodations at National 4-H Youth Conference Center, meals and a guided night time tour of the monuments and memorials in Washington, DC.
