A National 4-H Council Program Assistant will become a licensed Class B Tour Guide for the District of Columbia metro area and will facilitate National 4-H Council’s educational curricula to groups of youth from across the country. These job functions are accomplished in collaboration with each group’s coordinator as well as Council program staff and planning staff. National 4-H Council programs are intense and exciting learning experiences for youth and adults from all over the United States and the world. Program Assistants make these programs successful by using their skills and knowledge to help the participants have the most educational and fun experience possible in Washington DC and at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center. The hours of a Program Assistant are very long, usually between 50-60 hours a week, and often include evenings, weekends and holidays.
