"I am proud of how federal workers are using information technology to
put American citizens in immediate touch with their government and its
services," Vice President Gore said. "Information technology enables
us to rethink and reinvent the way government works."

NATIONAL 4-H YOUTH TECHNOLOGY CORPS:
CALIFORNIA'S EXPERIENCE
     Three years ago, ACE sponsored the start up of the National 4-H Youth
Technology Corps. ACE volunteers provide training facilities for the
young leaders.   They received in-depth training and then returned to
their communities to serve as "techno-mentors" in helping others in
their communities get comfortable with information technology.  Learn
why your organization should sponsor youth "techno-mentors" in your
community.
      The week of April 11 - 17th,   the next wave of more than
300 youth leaders will be in training at the National 4-H Center in
Washington.   ACE volunteers and 4-H adult leaders discuss the
progress made by the youth in the California 4-H Youth Technology
Corps.
