Forsyth County 4-H youth attends NCACC Youth Summit
A 4-H’er from Forsyth County attended the second annual North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) Youth Summit, which was held in Concord, North Carolina August 19 - 20. North Carolina 4-H and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service partnered for the second year with the NCACC on a multi-year initiative to increase youth involvement in county government. This initiative aims to overcome the mindset that many youth are disengaged and lack trust in government. This initiative also aims to identify issues and solutions that are facing youth in North Carolina.
The 4-H’er who attended from Forsyth County was Nathan Barrick. Over 85 youth and adults from over 70 counties in North Carolina attended this event. The event is sponsored and supported by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners.

The 4-H program is the youth education program of North Carolina Cooperative Extension, based at North Carolina State and North Carolina A&T State universities. More than 218,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 21,400 adult and youth volunteers.
