Jr. Leaders

Junior Leaders are those 4-H members who are at least in the 7th grade and are enrolled in the Junior Leader project. Junior Leader members belong to a county-wide club which meets throughout the year for educational and social activities.  In addition to belonging to the county organization, the Junior Leader member should assist the local club leader where possible. This may include: assisting with projects within a club, helping enroll members, encouraging 4-Hers to complete projects or assisting in planning programs, demonstrations, exhibits, projects and recreation. Food Stand and 4 other county activities (Attending 2 Jr. Leader Meetings can count as 2 activities.) Members completing required activities become eligible to participate in Jr. Leader Completion Activities.

If you still want to join the fun of Jr. Leaders, you can call the office or you can go back in and add Jr. Leaders as a club and a project at v2.4honline.com. Please make sure to provide your email and cell number when enrolling so we may communicate more easily with you.     

Remember, in order to complete Junior Leaders, you must complete 5 activities. The Jr. Leader Food Stand is our money-making project for our many fun activities. You can count attending 2 meetings towards your 5 activities. To help you complete your activities, we offer options throughout the year as well as during and after the fair.  Included below are 2 different opportunities to get in activities and some great service learning hours.    


Are you ready to get rolling with 4-H and Jr. Leaders for the new 4-H year?  Plan to attend the Jr. Leader callout on Sunday, October 9, 1-3pm. Weather permitting we will be able to have fun playing volleyball on their sand court or hiking by the creek. For those wanting more info bout Jr. Leaders checkout the below info.
