Allamakee County 4-H Council participates in Youth Leadership Retreat ...

Fifteen 4-H youth participated in a Youth Leadership Retreat August 27 at the Driftless Area Education Center in Lansing facilitated by Morgan Bjerke, Allamakee County Youth Coordinator. The Experiential Learning Model emphasizes the use of life skills to learn content objectives. Through 4-H, this model emphasizes the importance of student involvement in the experiences or activities in each situation of the learning cycle. Students bring their own experiences and knowledge to the learning cycle. The 2017 Allamakee County 4-H Council Retreat was strategic in bringing the Experiential Learning Model to action with a focus on self-discovery through a self-personality assessment along with creating an understanding and application of working in a team. County 4-H Council members participated in team building activities, completed a self-personality assessment, worked on goals and plans for the 2017-18 4-H year and had time to explore the Driftless Area Education Center. Participating youth are pictured above and included: Left to right - Front row: Soraya Reyes, Shara Cota, Diana Davison, Madalyn Ellingson, Madelyn Moser, Dani Stock.
