Description/Notes: 

Maryland 4-H Issue Forum, July 1, 2020, from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm is a premier teen leadership experience to foster civil discourse and community action in Maryland!

This year the 
Issue Forum will take place virtually. The forum is designed for teens 14-19 years old who want to help make a change in their community. Build a team by asking a friend or two and an adult volunteer. There are exciting breakout sessions, leading changemakers in the area of water quality and water access, and the keynote speaker. Dr. Edwin Green Jr. will give you the springboard to take your ideas back to your location and put a plan in place. Throughout the day there will be fun teen activities. We hope to see you there!
