Leaders 4 Life

Youth leadership development at the county level is currently delivered 254 different ways. Some counties conduct a thorough training while others may not even have an active County 4-H Council because they only have one 4-H club or have been unable to develop a structure that works effectively. Counties have limited resources available to help them train their County 4-H Council Teams. The Leaders 4 Life Program will provide additional resources to equip counties in conducting high quality leadership training, parliamentary procedure training, and service learning activities.
