PURPOSES:
To provide leadership training and recognition for 4-H volunteers, young adults, alumni and WV 4-H All-Stars. The weekend will focus on the enhancement of leadership abilities and skills for working with the 4-H program. The 4-H All-Star Consecration Ceremony and Volunteer Leader Recognition program will both be held during this weekend.

WV 4-H All-Stars and adult 4-H volunteer leaders and alumni, 18 years and older, who serve or want to learn more about serving as volunteers with the West Virginia 4-H program

WHEN:
September 25-27, 2020

WHERE:
WVU Jackson’s Mill, Weston, W.Va.

Enroll & Register for 4-H Activities

All participants must register even if they are not required to pay so that we can prepare enough materials, food, etc.

Anyone wishing to stay in private or lodge housing on Friday night must contact WVU Jackson's Mill directly at 304-269-5100 to register for housing.

PROGRAM:

The full conference program includes leadership learning sessions/workshops, WV 4-H All-Star business meeting, ideas for 4-H club meetings and activities, leader recognition, informative speakers, Council Circle, reflections, fellowship and fun.

The program is designed especially for adult 4-H volunteers to enhance the lives of youth across W.Va., and to acknowledge the tireless efforts of our volunteers. It is an excellent opportunity for leaders to learn about the 4-H program, gain leadership skills, get new program ideas, make new friends, assist in discussing future plans and renew enthusiasm for the 4-H program.

CANCELLATION/REFUNDS:
Cancellations and request for refunds must be emailed to Rachel.Griffith@mail.wvu.edu.

NO REFUNDS will be made for no-shows. (A $15 refund processing fee applies.)

The weekend has three separate registration options for participants. A Friday Package ($20), Saturday Only Package (Free) and Sunday Package ($10). Participants can register for any portion of the weekend with the total cost being a maximum of $30 (if staying in cottages for the entire weekend). If participants are interested in private housing options at Jackson’s Mill (private lodging, lodge or suites) they must call Jackson’s Mill directly to reserve and pay additionally for those options. Jackson’s Mill is currently accepting reservations for private lodging for this weekend. Past participants of YAC, VLW or Collegiate 4-H Conference will also be sent an additional promo code directly to further reduce the cost of the weekend as a thank you for their past participation in those events.

The schedule for this weekend is still being finalized, but will include speakers, workshops, an interactive/hands on service project and experiences which will help educate and train our adult 4-H members and volunteers in new and exciting areas in 4-H. The bulk of the experiences will be throughout Saturday, but some activities will be available on Friday evening and Sunday morning. The WV 4-H All Stars will have various recognition and events surrounding their 100th birthday as well as a consecration service for new members.  Remember this is the only scheduled consecration for adults in 2019.  We will also recognize outstanding volunteer, 45 and 50 year leaders.  This will be a great opportunity for adults from your county to learn and engage with others from throughout the state.
