About the 4-H PYD Spotlight Day - Morning Plenary
The PYD Spotlight Day is a one-day PYD immersive experience consisting of two separate events. The morning session is a plenary with an expert PYD speaker, Karen Pittman, followed by a panel presentation with the national 4-H leaders. Karen Pittman, founder and former CEO of the Forum for Youth Investment, started the youth development movement in the early 1990s with her famous statement, “problem-free is not fully prepared.” Ms. Pittman is a fan of 4-H work, and today she will share an updated vision of PYD for a new generation of youth. We will also hear from our five national 4-H partners on their efforts to center PYD in 4-H nationally and learn more about the work of the 4-H Standing Committee on Positive Youth Development. You will leave the session informed and motivated to make your PYD work the best it can be for a generation of youth that needs 4-H now more than ever!
