What is 4-H Teen Council?
The Teen Council is a group of youth across community clubs and projects in the county who come together to participate in planning and organizing service activities throughout Juab County. They consist of 4-Hers in grades 7th-12th who learn leadership skills, public speaking skills, and who are ambassadors of 4-H in all they do. To be a member of the Juab County Teen Council youth must come regularly to our monthly meetings and actively participate in events held throughout the 4-H year.
To register your child for Teen Council and help them gain valuable leadership experience, call our office, visit during one of our monthly meetings, or talk to a current teen council member. Joining Teen Council will provide your 4-Her with scholarship opportunities, resume experience, and help them grow in leadership and self-confidence.
