Utah State University Extension members and volunteers from across the state will attend Leadermete in Sevier County on April 7-9.
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.
Nearly 150 hands-on workshops will be offered, covering topics such as electronics, cooking, art, agriculture and more. Volunteers for the 4-H program will network, share ideas and participate in workshops and classes designed to help 4-H clubs grow.
“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.
