The 4-H Youth Leaders organization welcomes all 4-H members to become involved in their group if they are ages 12 and over. Youth may get involved any time of the year and to any level. The group meets the first Monday of the month at the UW-Extension Conference Rooms in the Normal Building, Phillips. Contact the Extension office for the time. 715-339-2555
Annual planning of community service, recreational activities and educational opportunities is done in the fall. Youth leaders are active in planning and arranging activities for their own group with advisement from volunteers and the 4-H Agent.
Older 4-H members have a large portion of cost of activities underwritten by funds the group has raised. The primary fundraiser is the 4-H Youth Leaders Dairy Bar operation at the Price County Fair. All older youth are urged to contribute time to this effort. Younger brothers and sisters can sign up to help as well.
If a club has no one actively involved in 4-H Youth Leaders they may designate a contact person who would receive mailings from the organization.
4-H Youth Leader activities have included:
- Valley Fair Trip
- Noah’s Ark Trip
- Petting Zoo at Dairy Breakfast
- Downhill Ski Trip
- 4-H Promotions
- Hosting Summer Library Program, Day Camp and more!
