Last Call to Register for the Buckeye Leadership Workshop

Submitted by Deryl Waldren

Three 4-H Youth Development Educator gurus have been a part of the Buckeye Leadership Workshop (BLW) in Columbus, OH, for decades. Two are bringing a slice of BLW to Kansas in August.

• Bill Henderson – known for his musical talents, song circles and Leadership training through music and recreation.
• John Fark – known for his facilitation skills and environmental activities. He is also known as Father Time.

Buckeye Leadership Workshop is a learning and sharing “workshop” intended as a balanced program of social, physical, mental, and spiritual activities. The Buckeye Leadership Workshop provides a powerful learning environment in which anyone who works with people, professionally or informally, can develop programming skills for youth or adults. The workshop also benefits those who simply enjoy associating with great people, experiencing new ideas, and learning new skills. Experiential learning through recreation is truly the intent and methodology of the Buckeye Leadership Workshop.
