Each year the Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Summer Internship Program invites dozens of students from across Cornell to engage with CCE staff on a broad variety of applied projects. This summer, three interns worked with 4-H program leaders from Dutchess, Columbia-Green, and Ulster counties on a Rural Storytelling Project. The project, offered in partnership with Cornell’s Office for Engagement Initiatives (OEI), engaged 4-Hers in multimedia, written and oral storytelling workshops. Each youth participant ended the summer by sharing a story about an element of life in their community during a virtual showcase.   In this episode of CCE’s “Extension Out Loud” podcast, the summer interns, joined by their CCE advisors and two 4-Hers, talk about the experience, lessons learned, and memories made.
