Operation Smile is State 4-H Community Service Project Back »

The South Dakota 4-H Youth Council has selected Operation Smile as the Statewide Community Service project for the 2011-2012 year. Operation Smile works with organizations and individuals across the country to sponsor cleft palate surgeries for children in developing countries. In as little as 45 minutes an Operation Smile volunteer surgeon can restore dignity to the life of a child, ending medical complications and difficulties in speech development. South Dakota 4-H members are challenged to lead their youth communities in funding Smile operations, providing essentials for post-operation kits, and educating their peers about cleft palate.
