What Is 4-H Teen Council?
A 4-H Teen Council is a group of teen 4-H members who work cooperatively with the County Extension Staff in planning and implementing County 4-H Events.
Some of the events that 4-H Teen Council may have responsibility for are:
- County 4-H Camp
- 4-H Day at the County Fair
- 4-H Achievement Night
- Community Service
Provide Leadership Opportunities to 4-H Youth
Leadership is a quality that is necessary for a person to possess if he or she wants to be successful in life. Through serving on Teen Council, a person can gain leadership skills by volunteering ideas or helping to carry out plans made by the council.
Promote 4-H to all people
What good is 4-H to the general public if they don’t know all of the great things it can do to help the youth of today? Teen Council is a great way to promote 4-H. They can come up with and carry out ideas that may be more appealing to youth.
