New Jersey 4-H is recruiting a team to participate in the World Food Prize Research Project. Youth members will work with a team to develop individual research projects addressing global food security issues. Participants will meet once a week with mentors and peers to prepare their research project. Projects will be presented at the Rutgers University Youth Institute Summit on March 11. During this day-long program, students get to learn about critical global issues, network with local leaders, engage in hands-on-activities, and explore exciting ways to become effective change agents in their own communities, conscientious global citizens, and tomorrow’s scientific humanitarian leaders. We are hosting an info session on December 20. Sessions will run on Thursdays, 7–8 p.m. starting January 6 through February 1.
