DCCC/4-H College and Career Day

The Center for Engagement and Community Development at Kansas State University has been supporting 4-H Youth Development on a statewide initiative to expose under-represented youth and families to a college experience.

Please refer to the following agenda and registration information, about April 20, 2017, found on Ford County 4-H Youth Development website: Flyer

In September of 2015, in collaboration with the Colleges of Agriculture, Engineering and Human Ecology, we were able to host a College and Career Day at K-State that served over 100 4-H youth and family members. The interested youth were from middle schools and high schools throughout the state of Kansas and particularly from southwest Kansas. Many of the families that attended had never set foot on a college campus before. The youth and parents were able to get a lot of their pressing questions answered about financial aid, standardized testing, college and career readiness, and speak directly to faculty from the above-mentioned departments.

This spring, for a second year in a row, we are partnering with Ryan Ausmus, Dean of Instruction and Outreach at Dodge City Community College, who as generously offered to host our 4-H youth and families at a local southwest Kansas college and career day event. Please refer to the above link for registration information. College and Career Day focuses on a youth audience from 6th to 12th grades. Family members are also welcome to attend.

The registration deadline for this event is March 31. Please contact Lexi Kiniston, Ford County Extension Agent, 4-H & Youth Development for any questions at lkiniston@ksu.edu or 620-227-4542.
