What is 4-H Teen Council?
The 4-H Teen Council is an organization for girls and boys that engages youth in positive personal and team building activities and events. Activities are structured in a fun and engaging manner to teach specific skills for personal development and are designed to encourage youth to then lead other youth to further personal growth and success.
Being able to teach, practice and focus on the three skills emphasized (leadership, service, and relationships) in a safe, positive, social and fun environment can help shape a successful future for your child.
Teen Council is the county 4-H leadership organization for teen 4-H club members. Its purpose is to help teen 4-H'ers develop leadership skills, while helping to build a strong, county 4-H program that benefits all members and volunteers. Teen Council members meet monthly to plan and implement 4-H educational programs, as well as community service and other social activities.
4-H Teen Council is good for putting some positive into your child's world so they have less opportunity to fill their lives with risky behaviors.
As parents, we want the best for our children. The 4-H motto is "to make the best better". Empowering our youth with real life skills before making it into the "real world" is a great way to set them up for success. 4-H Teen Council is a program to do just that.
