    Other 2018 Summer Clubs in the Works 


    Public Service Club for Families
    Colorful animated hands

    Expected to be held during early summer 2018.

    Location: Support will be provided for finding a location for the club to meet on or off base. 

    Two volunteers are needed to lead a Service Learning Project club with the 2018 USU Extension-Davis County 4-H Military Youth program. Youth will learn about service by researching a need, deciding upon a service solution, taking action, and engaging in some way with those being served. 4-H volunteers guide and support youth through hands-on project learning experiences. The youth lead the club meetings, make group decisions, and work together to gain project and life skills. 

    Time commitment: At least six hours. The club set up (weekly, monthly, summer, and other options) is decided by the volunteers. 4-H registration is expected for volunteers (background check required) and youth. Davis County 4-H staff will support volunteers and manage club funds. 

     Mental Health & Well-being Club

    The words mental health spelled out in wooden scrabble letters.

    The Mental Health & Well-being club will teach military youth about mental health and resiliency. This includes learning to cope with daily stresses as well as the unique stresses military youth endure. Youth will be taught by 15-18 year old Mental Health & Well-being Ambassadors which will have spent months training and preparing to lead the club.  4-H registration will be required to participate in this club.

    If your teenager is interested in becoming an ambassador, email savannah.malmrose@usu.edu for more information.
