Host Site Applications for Kansas 4-H Summer Engagement: Helping Youth Discover their Spark

Submitted by Shane Potter

Applications are now open for the 2022 4-H summer internship program. The program is a result of a partnership with the Kansas Department of Education. Specifically, the Kansas 4-H Summer Engagement: Helping Youth Discover their Spark to Increase Learning Program, seeks to directly address the impact of learning loss as a result of loss of instructional time. The program will leverage the rich curriculum basis available through the Kansas 4-H and Cooperative Extension system. The evidence informed programmatic outreach is specifically designed to foster youth Spark through 4-H project based exploration. Working in partnership with local extension agents, summer interns will deliver content through intensive SPIN (Special Interest Club), day camp, overnight camp and workshop offerings.

The 2022 Host Site Application pdf outlines the general program components and expectations as well as provides a list of questions which may be entered into the Qualtrics application.

A more complete timeline is included in the application document. A few important dates to note:

January 10 – Application opens for Local Programs
January 19 – Q&A Webinar for applications (recording available after)
February 7 – Local Program Applications Close
