4-H Youth Mentor Q&A: Avimilex Gomez

4-H Youth Mentor Avimilex Gomez - summary

While 4-H leaders and professionals play a major role in shaping the lives of today’s youth, it is important to recognize young adults who, in many cases, have a closer connection with the youth.

She was gracious enough to share her personal experiences as a mentor and how her involvement has impacted the lives of the youth she works with.

Let’s Talk About Money

The financial lessons that are learned at home can be reinforced through the new 4-H curriculum, My Financial Future, written by University of Florida Extension Specialists. The curriculum was written for middle and high school youth and is perfect for use in various settings such as camps, clubs, afterschool programs, and school enrichment.
