Young people who have been 4-H members for several years might be ready to expand their leadership role within their 4-H club, county or state level. These members may have shown leadership qualities through their project work or by serving on a committee.
Youth leaders should select what they are interested in doing. They should share these ideas with their parents and 4-H organizational or project or activity leaders. Youth leaders should then set goals or develop a plan of action for the year. Youth leaders will need support and encouragement from the adult volunteers and their parents in order to be successful.
Visit Wisconsin 4-H Youth Leadership page for more information and resources.
