Harrison County Junior Leaders Meeting

What is a Junior Leader?

The responsibility of leadership, the challenge of assisting others, and the opportunity to expand your personal experiences best sums up the objectives of the Junior Leader project. Harrison County 4-H Junior Leader is currently the only opportunity to serve as a leader at the county level. Many 4-H members serve as leaders in their local 4-H clubs, but not many get to experience leadership at the county level.

Junior Leaders must be in grade 7 or above, prior to January 1st. As a 4-H Junior Leader, you will be able to:

  • Help older and younger 4-H members develop leadership skills and abilities by assuming responsibilities for your own program.
  • Achieve a broad understanding of the meaning of leadership and the qualities of a leader.
  • Understand and practice ethical character.
  • Participate in team building.
  • Encourage involvement by every individual.
  • Develop follow-through and responsibility.
  • Improve written, verbal and interpersonal communication skills.
  • Gain self-confidence and self-respect.
  • Practice and acquire leadership skills.
  • Think critically and problem-solve.
  • Develop and practice empathy for others.
  • Understand and develop a sense of belonging with others and your community.
  • Develop and improve your resume for college and work applications after high school.
  • Discover career pathways and get involved in your community through service-learning opportunities.
