How many years have you been on youth council? 2 years
Why did you decide to join youth council?
I decided to join Youth Council because I had heard so many great stories from my friend who had served as an officer. I also wanted to help plan Teen Leadership Conference, which had become one of the highlights of my summer every year.
What is something you are looking forward to with youth council this year?
We have a lot of first-year members with a lot of enthusiasm, with this extra energy, we have begun expanding what we normally take on during a year. It's great to see youth council branching out.
What is your favorite 4-H project area? Why?
I always enjoyed Leadership, Citizenship, and Community Service. It was always rewarding to look back and see all that I had done in the past year to better my community.
Why should 4-H members join youth council?
Youth Council is an amazing experience that makes you a part of an amazing family. It also gives you a wonderful platform to influence the direction of TLC and even 4-H as a whole.
