Kansas 4-H Communications

Kansas 4-H members have been learning communication skills and building confidence for more than 100 years. Through engagement in 4-H, youth will learn to interpret verbal and nonverbal information, develop effective public speaking skills, enhance written and spoken communication, defend a point, design a presentation, and much more!


Kansas 4-H has many helpful resources to assist you with developing communication skills. Visit the Kansas 4-H Communications Project webpage for teaching and learning tools. If you can’t find a resource to meet your needs, please contact your local Post Rock District Office.
