National Summit on Healthy Living: February 16-19, 2018
By Beth Hinshaw & Andrea Feldkamp
At the National Youth Summit on Healthy Living high school students develop the knowledge and skills to address today’s issues including nutrition education, physical fitness, wellness, and emotional well-being. National 4‑H Council and National 4‑H Conference Center have partnered with professionals in family consumer science and healthy living to host the National Youth Summit on Healthy Living. Students are trained to create action plans to implement in their communities and teach other youth about what they have learned. The structure of the summits maximizes the amount of hands-on learning experiences and translates that learning to direct outcomes.
The National Youth Summit on Healthy Living takes place February 16 – 19, 2018. Summit fees include accommodations at the National 4‑H Conference Center, meals, educational programming and tours including a guided night time tour of the monuments and memorials in Washington, DC. All-you-can-eat meals are served at the Clover Cafe at National 4‑H Conference Center beginning with dinner on Friday, February 16 and ending with a box lunch on Monday, February 19, 2018.
