4-H Tribal Mentoring ProgramWesley Bain, Lindsay Carter and David Yonker
4-H Tribal Mentoring Program, Calvin
The students, who are seniors at Calvin High School, became involved in Calvin 4-H when they were in elementary school and have grown to become mentors themselves and give back to the organization, said Debbie Wilson, extension program assistant for 4-H Tribal Youth. Each of the students has been active in 4-H at the local, county, district and state levels.
Wesley, Lindsay and David enrolled in the Tribal 4-H program in 2012 as mentees and became mentors two years ago, serving younger students in fifth through eighth grade.
Wesley and Lindsay are planning to attend college after graduation, while David plans to join the workforce.
“They are great examples of young people following the 4-H motto and ‘making the best better,’” Debbie added.
