The National Association of Extension 4-H Youth Development Professionals (NAE4-HYDP) recently announced regional award winners in their Specialty Awards categories. The South Jersey 4-H Teen Conference is planned and conducted by 4-H professionals in the 10 South Jersey counties and 4-H youth representatives. Though Covid did not allow for an in-person conference, a half-day virtual conference called Empowered Together While Apart was held. This program served 47 youth and 25 adults and is recognized in the Excellence in Healthy Living Programming. Speakers led workshops on mindfulness, health and wellness, decluttering, and our keynote speaker taught participants how to Be a Torchbearer!
