Lace up for 4-H Leadership Boot Camp Contact: Rachel Noble, extension specialist for 4-H youth development Senior 4-Hers who are interested in becoming a leader of Kentucky 4-H will want to attend the 4-H Leadership Boot Camp. The boot camp is from Dec. 17-19 at the Lake Cumberland 4-H Educational Center in Jabez.
The intensive, three-day leadership camp is for 4-H members who are at least 14 years old and are interested in serving in a statewide leadership position. This includes positions on the 4-H State Teen Council, state leadership boards or as a Kentucky 4-H state officer. At the camp, participants will learn from, and network with, past 4-H leadership teams, extension agents and other 4-Hers. Campers will attend several sessions to help them develop and refine their leadership and communications skills. They will hear from a former state 4-H officer, who will share how they earned a statewide leadership role in 4-H. They will also learn about goal setting, parliamentary procedure, resume development, public speaking, etiquette tips and how to express appreciation. At the conclusion of the camp, 4-Hers will deliver a speech and receive constructive feedback.
The registration deadline is Dec. 4. The cost to attend is $80 per youth and $100 per adult. To register and for more information, contact the Woodford County Cooperative Extension Service.
