Your only way off the island is to make some new friends, learn some new things and utilize your leadership skills to work together and charter a new course for home.

Luke Duran is a graphic artist, 4-H club leader and 4-H photography project superintendent who will share how he uses visual storytelling to communicate, both for his design clients and for his personal brand. This is a fun, interactive presentation that begins with some storytelling on how to seek and find your own passion. We will then venture out on a short photo safari to capture unique images that fuel your passion. After, we’ll pair these images with words to tell a one-of-a-kind 4-H story and present it to the audience. Stand out from the pack: tell your story in a compelling, unforgettable way! Materials: You’ll need to bring a pen or pencil to write with, and a digital camera or smartphone that can send images via AirDrop or text message. If you don’t have either let us know and we can find something for you.

Food-Systems Careers Opportunities
In this workshop participants will learn the fundamentals of interviews for developing a plan to interview professionals working in farms, labs, and food processing jobs. The focus will be on careers in agriculture including: food production, research, processing, marketing, and policy. We will visit two facilities associated to some of these careers (e.g. farms, labs, and food services). Participants will interview professionals about their careers’ opportunities and expectations. The workshop will culminate with the production of a poster to showcase career opportunities in food systems. The workshop will start at MSU, then we will drive to two facilities (up to three miles from campus) to tour the facility and interview professionals, finally we will come back to MSU for the poster production.
