CWF is a great program and really helped me to get on a path to building civic awareness...and led to me eventually having the wonderful opportunity to work on Capitol Hill after college.- Nebraska CWF alumni

What does it mean to be a good citizen? Are you being a strong civic leader for your community, country and world?
For more than 50 years, thousands of high school youth from all across the country have travelled to Washington, DC each summer to partake in the preeminent 4-H citizenship and leadership experience—Citizenship Washington Focus.
Youth use Washington, DC as a living classroom, learning about the history of our nation, the leaders who have shaped it and their role in civic affairs both nationally and locally. CWF isn’t just another DC field trip – students learn essential civic leadership skills and leave with the tools that will allow them to bring about real change in their communities.
CWF is the only national citizenship and leadership program offered exclusively to 4-H members.
