2021 NAE4-HYDP Conference
The 2021 National Association of Extension 4-H Youth Development Professionals (NAE4-HYDP) Conference was held in Memphis, Tennessee November 15-18. After switching to a virtual format last year due to COVID-19 concerns, I was pleased that this year’s conference was in-person and at a location that was reasonable for travel from Missouri. All conference activities were held at the Historic Peabody Hotel, and the theme of the event was “Pick 4-H: It’s Music to Inspire!”
NAE4-HYDP is the boots-on-the-ground component of the 4-H movement and is made up of 4-H professionals from land-grant institutions across the United States. There were 875 youth development professionals in attendance at the 2021 conference with another 350 joining virtually. I attended this conference for the first time through Title III Professional Development funds. I am happy to share my experience with other youth development professionals.
