Due to the success of the Summer PenPal program, States’ 4-H has decided to offer a program for 4-H members in active exchange states for a winter opportunity. States’ 4-H, our National Organization for international exchanges, worked with international partners to establish a pen pal program for 4-H members and families to engage with an international child and/or family.

Registration for this program will run November 16–December 11, 2020. Matching will take place through the States’ 4-H Exchange Program and its staff. NC 4-H will not be matching delegates for this program. Requirements include at least 2 writing exchanges per month for the PenPal program duration, and there is no guarantee for a match based on program number projections.
