4-H Teens Take on Health
October 6-12 is National 4-H Week and 17-year-old Tom Malone from the Camino Go Getters 4-H Club is just one example of the type of leadership that participation in 4-H can develop.
On Oct. 12, Malone will be facilitating a youth forum in Sacramento with teens from all over the state of California, giving them a voice to share their views on health and to develop solutions to help create healthier communities across the state and nation. The Teens Take on Health Town Hall is just one of the events in 4-H’s new initiative “Revolution of Responsibility” taking place nationwide as 4-H’s centennial year gets underway.
Malone, who has been involved with the Camino 4-H group for about 10 years, was one of only two youth selected to represent the state of California with Teens Take on Health, a partnership between 4-H and Molina Healthcare. The Jesuit High School senior responded to a state-wide e-mail requesting applications for the delegate position earlier this year.
