WHAT IS ARIE?
ARIE also known as Application, Resume, Interview & Essay is a 4-step process by which youth are chosen to attend National events such as National Congress, National Conference, and International Leadership Conference. Participants will gain valuable experience that will help them prepare for applying for college and jobs.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Any youth ages 14-18. Age is determined by age as of January 1 of the current year.
Youth ages 11-13 aspiring to participate in the ARIE program are encouraged to participate this year in a non-competitive “Interview” process.
Mock interviews will be held during the competitive ARIE interviews on Monday of 4-H Congress (July 19, 2010). Note: A separate room and panel of judges will be used to support the younger youth.
We encourage any 4-H’er (age 11-13) who aspires to participate in the ARIE program to register and participate in this new non-competitive mock interview process. It will be a fun learning experience.
HOW DO I APPLY?
All of the materials needed to apply for ARIE will be provided at the workshop on April 5th in addition to useful tips on completing an application that will stand out amongst the crowd. If you are unable to attend the workshop but still wish to participate, email firstname.lastname@example.org for the application materials. Deadline to sign up for the workshop is April 1st.
