Become A Youth Leader

Washington County 4-H is seeking youth in the seventh grade and older to join a teen leader group.  Previous 4-H membership is not required. This will be a great opportunity for young people to step up their leadership skills.  It will also build new skills and provide opportunities that teens can use in building their resume. This teen team will help plan and teach workshops for 4-H youth.

Interested teens should call the Washington County Extension Office by December 17. For more information call 618-327-8881.  Meeting dates will be determined based on interest.

Follow us on Facebook at Washington County, Illinois 4-H to keep up with local 4-H activities.
