Teens develop life skills through a 4-H camp.

The end of the year means a fresh crop of recent graduates. And, every year many graduates face the reality of paying back the loans they accumulated during their college years. This year has been especially difficult for recent graduates because of the problems with the economy and lack of jobs for graduates. KBIA’s Celeste Miller spent some time with a college graduate working two jobs.

Also, a recent event sponsored by Missouri’s 4-H Camp focused on getting teens interested in healthy eating habits, cooking, and fitness, by teaming them up with a local start-up company that makes granola bars. The 4-H camp is an activity-based educational program for young teens to discover and develop life skills— similar to the Boy Scouts. KBIA’s Kristen Brody attended one of the events with the 4-H campers. Hosted by KBIA’s Janet Saidi.
