Workshops Descriptions

November 11, 2021, Strong Clubs: Growing Up Speaking Up

We sometimes struggle with older member retention but studies and experience show that older 4-Hers stick around when they feel like they are contributing to programs and their voice is being heard. Learn how to include older members more in decision-making and programming to keep them engaged and coming back as role models for your younger members.

December 9, 2021, Strong Clubs: Finding Your Fit

An important component of any 4-H meeting is the program. Good 4-H club programs do not magically appear – they are planned. Choosing programs for the year is often the first step in mapping out the club’s activities and helping guide youth in their own development and learning. Join us for an evening of exploring creative and unique club program options and for a chance to network with other leaders!
