Oregon 150’s “Activate Oregon” to continue under
OSU 4-H Youth Development Program!
Oregon 150 is pleased to annouce that Oregon State University has been chosen to continue the visioning and community action program initiated in 2009 by Oregon teens through “Project 2059: Activate Oregon.” The annoucement was made Thursday September 24, 2009 (read the press release). In upcoming weeks, Oregon 4-H will begin the process of assembling a leadership team for the project and begin planning for a second “Activate Oregon” leadership summit in 2010. 4-H personnel located across the state of Oregon will engage with existing youth leadership groups and 4-H clubs to catalyze local actions focused on education, the economy, and the environment.
To find out more about the future plans for Project 2059 visit www.project2059.com or contact Oregon 4-H at 541-737-2421.
Project Overview & Resources
The Youth Engagement Module is to be utilized as a framework for future efforts of similar scope, highlighting key goals, program formation and language, project team assembly and roles, message development and outreach, event planning, work share and outcome evaluation through narrated process points and descriptions specific to “Activate Oregon.”
The Youth Took Kit is meant to act as a resource guide for aspiring organizers and change agents. It is a compilation of existing reference writings in and around youth leadership development, new media literacy, and grassroots organizing aimed at increasing youth engagement and civic participation through awareness. The exercises, models, excerpts, and hyperlinks should provide the budding change agent with enough referential tools to plan and execute a relevant action plan.
