Junior Leaders is open to any youth currently in grades 7-12 enrolled in Vigo County 4-H. The club focuses on creating leadership opportunities through community service, mentoring, and fundraising. Members are able to travel for club trips, state 4-H trips at Purdue, and apply for local and state 4-H scholarships. Junior Leaders is a great way to build friendships across the county and state! The next meeting is December 12 at 6:30 pm at the Community Center at the fairgrounds. Contact either 4-H Educator for more details.

volunteers needed

Do you know an adult that has an interest in teaching youth a new skill or serving as a club leader? We currently have Community 4-H Clubs in need of leaders. We are looking to add more SPARK Clubs also. A SPARK club consists of 6 or more hours on a special topic. (ex. Yoga, golfing, sewing, wildlife, almost anything!) Contact one of our 4-H Educators to learn more!
