Fun, Innovative Summer Leadership Program For Statewide Youth Ages 11-13 at VSU

July 15-18, 2019

Youth ages 11-13 are invited to participate in a 4-H summer leadership program at Virginia State University (VSU) July 15-18, 2019. The iLeadership Institute is a four-day, three-night program on the VSU campus designed to foster leadership skills in middle school-aged children (who are 11-13 any time during the current 4-H year of October 1, 2018 and September 30, 2019). There is an option to attend the program on a daily basis for one or more days. No previous experience with 4-H is required. Youth participating in this program will automatically be enrolled into the Virginia 4-H program free of charge.
The highly acclaimed program, now in its second year, features interactive activities that expose youth to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture, and Math) subjects, teach basic marketing skills, and strengthen team-building and networking abilities. Youth will also be introduced to distinguished speakers, learn table etiquette, develop personal action plans, experience what it is like to live on a college campus, and more.
Additionally, the iLeadership Institute will enhance the ability of new, current and future 4-H youth to serve in local, district, state and national 4-H leadership roles.
Registration for the iLeadership Institute is $300. Youth can also participate on a day-to-day basis, for $100 per day. 4-H members aged age 16-18 with Teen Mentor training can participate as a Teen Counselor for $50. Adult volunteers and 4-H Agents can participate for $25.

Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center’s Denim Days Donations

Emporia, VA – Wearing comfy clothes to work is always a perk, but when it helps charitable causes in the community it’s truly a pleasure. Throughout the months of March and April, the staff of Southern Virginia Regional Medical Center (SVRMC) participated in Denim Days.  By donating $5.00, hospital staff was able to wear jeans on Fridays.

In recognition of National Nutrition Month, all proceeds raised during the month of March were donated to the Main Street Baptist Church Food Bank. The staff at SVRMC made a donation that totaled more than $200 and included dry goods.

Helping celebrate Healthy Kids Day, the staff of SVRMC raised $175 during April Denim Days and donated to the Emporia-Greensville YMCA. It’s no surprise the idea of summer is a highly anticipated time for both kids and adults. Unfortunately, health and well-being sometimes gets forgotten during the summer months. In an effort to bring awareness to families in the community and to encourage the development of healthy habits at home, YMCAs across the country, including the Emporia-Greensville YMCA, celebrated Health Kids Day on April 26. The staff at SVRMC was excited to help contribute to a wonderful cause.



March Denim Days supported the Main Street Baptist Church Food Bank in recognition of National Nutrition Month.
