Right now, our committee is working on developing and implementing our new conference, Bay Coast Teens. The conference will focus on career development, building positive relationships,and finding your spark. Planned activities include industry tours, career fair, sessions on careers and personal development, as well as fun recreation opportunities. We have the conference itself fleshed out, but we are working on locking down location and date- it looks like it will be on the Monterey peninsula in Summer of 2018.
We are currently recruiting applicants for the planning committee- please forward this application to clubs, and any teen leaders or adult volunteers that you think would offer something valuable to this committee. We're looking for creative thinkers and people with a passion for what they do (whether it's STEM, agriculture, the arts, etc.). This event is all new, and it's a great opportunity to make a big legacy.

- Connecting Local Seniors with 4-H Clubs
Catholic Charities of Santa Rosa has an adult day program called the Shaw Center for Memory Care. They are a non-profit program serving seniors who have dementia. Their goal is to provide enriching activities for seniors, including, but not limited to music, physical activity, socialization, gardening, memory games, animal therapy, and art. In the past they have had a 4H group bring their animals to their outdoor site in Santa Rosa to share with their senior clients. They are currently looking for a 4H club who is interested in bringing their animals to the program during the Summer to create a fun day of learning about animals for their seniors. Please contact Lindsey Hazlewood, Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 528-8712 x 184 if your group is interested.
