4-H Acts for Change

Act for Change is a 4-H youth development program that brings together teens from across New York’s Ulster County to engage in anti-racist dialogue and work across identity groups. The program culminates in the development of a final showcase or project centering issues or topics important to the youth participants. The intern will incorporate performing and visual arts into the existing Act for Change curriculum for future program facilitators. This individual will work with Act for Change youth program alums in Ulster County, and may help create a visual or performing art piece to be showcased at the Ulster County Fair.
