The Maryland 4-H Agricultural Experience: Great Britain program was developed to provide youth with an international, travel abroad experience in order to gain life skills and increased cultural awareness, agricultural appreciation, and to provide youth with a better understanding of global agriculture. This experience was developed by a team of University of Maryland Extension 4-H Educators and the Maryland State 4-H Program Leader in 2018, and was piloted with a group of 10 youth in the summer of 2019. In addition to program results being shared, further suggestions for building cultural competency at the county level are offered.
