Leaders create leaders.

Leadership Summit is an exciting opportunity for 4-H volunteer leaders and professionals to showcase the communities they are building, share innovative program ideas, and hear from experts on emerging topics. It includes a mix of workshops, an expert keynote, knowledge sharing, networking, and fun!

4-H is all about the “Learn To Do By Doing” approach. The best way to create a 4-H club where youth feel valued, connected, and supported is to experience these things when you attend Leadership Summit!

About the Program

The goal at the end of Leadership Summit is that participants feel:

  • Valued, as we celebrate volunteer achievements;
  • Connected, as we share successes and challenges, and you expand your network within the 4-H movement;
  • Supported, as we share new resources and bring in experts to engage you in thinking about new approaches and best practices in positive youth development; and
  • Equipped with new tools, skills, and ideas to take back to your club and share with your youth members.
