Dream with Disney – 2016 State Teen Conference Registration NOW OPEN!

As we near the holidays, we are very pleased to offer the new and improved online registration for the 2016 State Teen Conference.
Dream with Disney – If you can dream it, you can do it!
The conference will be held on January 30-31, 2016 at the Courtyard Marriott in Newark. This year, the conference falls during National Drug & Alcohol Facts Week, so the event will feature a guest speaker who has experienced the real-life effects of addiction. Other workshop topics include Breaking the Code-A Bully Simulation and Social Media & Connections to Careers.
Participants will also be creating Wellness Kits for a local homeless shelter. New Castle County 4-Hers are asked to bring travel-size non-perishable snacks including goldfish, crackers, granola bars, etc.
The cost is $50 for active Junior Council members and $100 for all other Delaware 4-Hers, age 13 and above.  The discount will automatically be added to your registration when you click the “Jr. Council” button. If you are not sure if you qualify for the discount, please contact the 4-H office.
Registration and payment are due January 20, 2016!

4-H Leaders and Volunteers:

You are invited to attend the Stewards for Children training on Monday, November 23. This training will be held in conjunction with the November Leader’s Association meeting. In order to accommodate this training, we will be switching our schedule slightly. The leader’s meeting will be held at the Extension Office from 6:00-6:30pm. Following the brief meeting, our 4-H Volunteer Specialist, Dr. Ernie Lopez, will be conducting the Stewards of Children Training. Dinner will be provided for all training participants.

Stewards of Children is a sexual abuse training that is required by all UD Extension Staff and is strongly encouraged to all of our 4-H volunteers, leaders and parents. Although this training is not required, it is highly recommended.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Lisa Bishop by Friday, November 20. You can reach e-mail Lisa or call (302) 831-8965.

For more information, please review the Stewards of Children Training letter from Dr. Lopez.
