Blueprint for the Future • Call to Action • We must agree to support the following initiatives: • Scholarships • 100% of counties having applicants for 4-H scholarships • Curriculum • 100% of counties utilizing the state 4-H curriculum products. • Competitive Youth Learning Experiences & Opportunities • 100% of counties participating in some of the state competitive learning experiences. • International Experiences • 100% of counties participating at least once in every 5 years in the International Program.

  24. Blueprint for the Future • How will we achieve this? • Agreeing to work together for the common good of 4-H. • Holding each other accountable. • Sharing our best practices for moving 4-H forward. • Reporting county participation in state initiatives on a regular basis . • Providing incentive/credit/recognition for those professionals and counties that participate in state initiatives. • Choosing to make sure that every 4-H’er in North Carolina has the opportunity to participate.

  25. Blueprint for the Future Leadership is getting people to do what they don’t want to do to achieve what they want to achieve. Landry The separation between great organizations and mediocre organizations is the latter’s tendency to explain away the brutal facts rather than to confront the brutal facts head-on.” Collins "We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence then is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle
