TiLT Overview

To highlight our Teens in Leadership Training (TiLT) program, we’re spotlighting some of our current and former volunteers, learning about their involvement in the program, and seeing how their experience has continued to impact them. Brunswick County 4-H TiLT youth volunteer teaching program trains youth volunteers ages 13-18, to deliver in-school, after-school, and summer programs that teach healthy living, STEM, good stewardship, and environmental awareness of the resources in Brunswick County.

Before tilt I had no clue what I wanted to do with my future so I kind of just tried all the fields out and the one thing that stuck with me was teaching so I kept teaching and every time I walked into a school I immediately knew that it was my place and that it was my passion.

One more question! Tell us a little bit about you, now! What are you doing and where are you? What are your future plans, etc…

My Name is Autumn Apple. I’m 17 years old I’m going into my senior year of high school after that I’m going to take a leap year to travel and volunteer in different places where I’m needed. Then I plan on going to school for early childhood development and hopefully end up in the Brunswick County school system as a kindergarten or PE teacher
