    Leadermete is an educational conference for 4-H volunteers, staff and teens. It is designed to help 4-H volunteers and youth expand their knowledge and develop skills that can assist them in becoming engaged leaders in their clubs, their community, their country and the world.

    “Leadermete is the best place to learn new skills and receive support for local 4-H programs,” said Stacey MacArthur, USU Extension 4-H volunteer development specialist.

    A service project, a hypnotist show and a youth dance are also part of the schedule. Tickets vary in price and from $20 to $70 for adults and from $15 to $35 for youth.
