The Junior Leader project allows 4-H members in grades 7-12 the opportunity to provide their Adult 4-H Volunteers with additional assistance in their 4-H Clubs and related activities. Jr. Leaders also serve as mentors and role models to the younger 4-H members by sharing their experiences with them. Many counties offer county-wide opportunities for Jr. Leaders to meet and serve the community.
The #Adulting 101 resources have been developed for use with Indiana 4-H Junior Leaders. These lessons provide information on some basic skills that youth will need as they enter adulthood. The lessons can be completed as a group or individually. The lessons are numbered, but may be completed in any order.
