The Larimer County 4-H Exchange Club

The Larimer County 4-H Exchange Program is an opportunity for youth to participate in a series of learning experiences in which individuals visit in the homes of 4-H members in other geographical areas and are visited by them in return. Counties usually host a group one year and return to visit the homes of their guests the following year. The Larimer County 4-H Exchange Program is an opportunity for youth to:

  • Gain a deeper insight into one’s own values
  • Increase understanding and appreciation of others’ heritage, customs, and cultural factors
  • Foster the development of initiative, independence, and leadership skills
  • Create new, and perhaps, lasting friendships 
  • Expand 4-H understanding beyond local community or county and share information learned to strengthen local 4-H clubs and activities
  • Become involved in another community
