2019 4-H Leader Forum – February 2// here is the normal content // ?>
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, the leader forum will be held at the Polytech High School in Kent County.
“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.”
Indeed, exciting workshops are on tap! Topics include county judging training kits, making connections to STEM careers, charter seals, getting caught up with 4-H Online, mindfulness practices and emerging leaders in social media, among many others! Click the PDF below to get all the details!
