Vermont 4-H offers a wide variety of opportunities which enable teens to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and aspirations needed for success in the 21st century. Teens can participate in programs focused on LEADERSHIP, CITIZENSHIP, and LIFESKILLS, through exploring a variety of topics.
Vermont 4-H has a strong focus in TEEN & LEADERSHIP programming
All youth have leadership potential. Most leadership specialists agree that leaders are made, not born, and that young people can learn and develop leadership attitudes and skills. Becoming a leader is a developmental process but this process is often overlooked in education.
Training is provided. Enthusiasm is required!
Share Your Talents: You have a lot to give. After all, you have years of life experiences. Now is your chance to share your knowledge and talents with young people.
Flexibility to Fit Your Interests: What do you like to do? What's your passion? There are many interesting projects and fun things to do as apart of 4-H. Despite what many people think, 4-H is not just a program for farm kids. It's for ALL KIDS...and for the adults who want to help them grow!
