Plan ahead for Citizenship Washington Focus 2018!

Thousands of young people from across the United States come to the National 4-H Youth Conference Center every summer to participate in Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF), a citizenship and leadership program held in Washington, D.C.

Through a series of speakers, committee work, field trips and social events, participants learn the importance of citizenship and social responsibility and are given the opportunity to explore, develop, and refine skills needed to be an outstanding leader on both a local and national level.

CWF will be held June 24 - 30, 2018 (travel dates June 23 – 30, 2018).  The week begins with a required pre-conference on June 23 before departing for Washington D.C.
