Teen takes the lead in Sonoma 4-H service projects

In 2009, UCCE in Sonoma County recognized a need for service projects in the community. When the county office was unable to find an adult volunteer to lead the community service effort, a 4-H teen member named Gianna stepped forward. At age 14, Gianna worked with her UCCE 4-H program representative and formed the Sonoma County 4-H Teen Community Service Action Group. Working through her 4-H Club, Gianna has organized more than 300 teenagers to engage in service projects and to raise thousands of dollars in donations and countless toys, blankets, and toiletries for distribution by organizations that help the less fortunate.
