Planning, Delivery and Evaluation of Youth Programming in Denver

Denver County 4-H provides a variety of programs and events for the surrounding diverse community. Our programmatic efforts include summer camps, events, concurrent out-of-school programs, and school enrichment. Each program and event helps fulfill the mission of helping youth reach their fullest potential, sparking interest in STEM, and building and enhancing relationships with caring adults.
The scope of the internship will focus on analyzing the topics identified in the CSU Denver Extension needs assessment (mental health, connection with the outdoors, healthy living, career exploration, science education, etc.) and creating summer programming and camps that align with these topics. The intern will plan and deliver 4-H summer STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), natural resources, healthy living, and/or outdoor educational programming for youth based on their findings. Additionally, the intern will also work on creating program outreach and marketing plans, and evaluating the program using both quantitative and qualitative data collection. The ultimate goal of the internship is to create positive and engaging youth programming that is responsive to local youth needs.
The internship objectives include becoming familiar, confident, and competent with positive youth development, the 4-H thrive model, conducting a short needs assessment, program development, delivery and evaluation methods, and advertising and marketing tools.
