Citizenship Washington Focus
A National Leadership Workshop
Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is an annual trip offered to senior 4-H youth (Ages 14-19) to visit Washington D.C. for one week while improving their leadership skills and talents. While in D.C. the delegates will get a behind-the-scenes look at our nations capital, they will meet members of Congress, develop communication, leadership & citizenship skills, and leave Washington D.C. with a new sense of confidence.

While attending the CWF experience, the Arkansas delegates will engage in workshops with 4-H youth from other states. Workshops include:
The CWF Experience
Safety is first and foremost when our youth are in the nation's Capitol. While in Washington D.C. youth stay at the National 4-H Conference Center, a 12-acre campus one mile from Washington, D.C. This facility is alcohol free and has 24-hour security guards on campus.
Tours are provided by highly trained and licensed program assistants, many who are former 4-Hers! These program assistants also lead fun activities that focus on leadership through hands-on activities.
While in the Capitol, 4-H'ers visit several historically significant sites and monuments, attend a cultural event and meet politicians from Arkansas and from across the nation.
- Mount Vernon
- The Smithsonian Museums
- The Capitol Building
- World War II Memorial
- Vietnam Memorial
- Korean Conflict Memorial
- The Holocaust Museum
- Pentagon's 9-11 Memorial
- Air Force and Marine Memorials
