4-H Round-Up is an exciting opportunity offered to youth who have completed grades 7, 8, and 9. Attendees have an opportunity to explore a variety of careers by attending classes created just for Round-Up attendees at Purdue University. Participants will get a taste of college life and will live in a Purdue Residence Hall for two nights. Youth have an opportunity to meet others from across the state and further develop their leadership skills. Recreation events are planned in the evenings and blocks of free time allow attendees the opportunity to build friendships on their own. Contact yourlocal Purdue Extension Office to register.

Indiana 4-H Round-Up was an online experience for youth in grades 7, 8, and 9, and recordings are available to the public. Have you ever heard the phrase, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Well, bad things don't just happen to good people they happen to everyone. But life isn't about the bad things that happen to us, it's about how we respond and react to them. Our response is going to determine the path our life takes. When life knocks us down we have two choices: GIVE UP or GET UP?


On May 20th, Michael Cuestas inspired youth by telling his personal story of overcoming poverty, growing up without a father, and homelessness. His story moved students to know that they are greater than their choices, their mistakes, and their past. Watch the recording below.

On May 21st, Michael presented his 10 STRATEGIES TO AN EPIC JOB INTERVIEW (INTERVIEWING SKILLS) workshop. This workshop gave students the knowledge to have an exceptional interview. Michael worked for 6 different Fortune 500 companies and has taken his experience, with the hiring process, and created this highly interactive workshop for students. This workshop debunked many myths about job interviewing and gave students the information and confidence they need to have an epic job interview. Watch the recording below.

This event was funded by Indiana 4-H Foundation with financial sponsorship from Corteva agriscience, Indiana State Department of Agriculture, and CERES Solutions.  For more information contact Tony Carrell, Extension Specialist, 4-H Youth Development.
