The Marshall County 4-H Office is now accepting applications for individuals interested in serving on the Marshall County 4-H Youth Council for the 2017-2018 4-H year.
What is Youth Council?
Youth Council is involved in the following endeavors throughout the 4-H year: planning and implementing community service projects, acting as the face of 4-H while assisting at county 4-H sponsored events, and helping determine which curriculum is used and which activities are included in programming for the 4-H club year. We have lots of fun, and serving on 4-H County Council is a wonderful leadership opportunity that will benefit you in all you do in the future.
Haven’t thought of yourself as a leader before? This may be the perfect opportunity!!!
What do the members say?
“It’s given me a chance to step out of my comfort zone, make new friends, and become a leader”.
