Tech Wizards National 4-H Mentoring Program

The 4-H Tech Wizards program exposes youth to technology to help them understand how to better utilize it. The program also showcases different possible careers that involve technology. Participants become 4-H members and meet as a group/club with a specific technology focus, choosing from a broad spectrum of options and projects in which youth learn about a specific technology as well as participate in community service. Each group organizes a family night event in which family members are invited to learn and see what youth have been working on.
