2018 4-H Leader Forum – February 3

Register Online Now!

A winter tradition, the Delaware 4-H Leader forum offers a full day of educational workshops and fellowship with 4-H volunteers together with a larger Extension family of experts, agents and educators.  The location of the forum rotates annually among our three counties. This year, New Castle County 4-H serves as host at the University of Delaware, Townsend Hall.

“The Delaware 4-H State Leader Forum is one of the most important days on the Delaware 4-H calendar,” said State 4-H Volunteer Specialist Ernie Lopez.  “From sharing new ways to make the best better to honoring our volunteers of this year, the event is always  meaningful and draws a big crowd”

Volunteer 4-H adults, known as “leaders” are encouraged to learn a new skill to take back to their 4-H clubs!  The Delaware 4-H Leader Forum is open to all Delaware 4-H volunteers and also to adults who are considering joining our fantastic volunteer force.

Doug Crouse, state 4-H program leader encourages all leaders to attend.  “There are a variety of workshops being offered in the areas of leadership, media and marketing, healthy living and 4-H project work, just to name a few.  Be sure to register for this event for a tremendous day of learning and a great networking opportunity with other 4-H volunteers throughout the state.”
