The Georgia 4-H Communications and Technology Team (Tech Team) is comprised of middle and high school youth and is led by a group of adult staff and collegiate volunteers with a passion for technology education.  The goal of the Tech Team is to increase the use of computer technology in 4-H through various means including videography, photography, podcasting, GIS/GPS, and graphic design.  The team meets twice a year to complete various educational projects that benefit local state 4-H programming efforts.  Additionally, youth are exposed to a variety of communication and technology-related careers.  Georgia 4-H Tech Team members are selected annually through a competitive application process.
