Teens as Teachers
Teens as Teachers is a hands-on opportunity for teams of youth to learn how to do, implement and create hands-on learning experiences for youth in their communities. This weekend training targets youth in grades 9th-12th grade and teaches them not only subject matter, but also how to teach, hands-on learning, ages of youth development, public speaking, and lesson planning!
The program is broken down into four different tracks:
Learn how to train, create, and implement a
“Science Behind Agriculture” program in your community.
Automated Animal Biosecurity
Do you like animals? Do you
enjoy science? Youth will learn how to teach about animal
biosecurity through hands-on “maker” and robotics activities
designed for youth learning using creativity and self-discovery.
Teens will learn how to train, create, and
implement healthy living programs (such as nutrition, physical
activity, and social/emotional health) in their community.
Teams will learn to lead community-based
activities designed to help their peers develop leadership life
skills, leading to enhanced workforce preparation.
