CES 4-H News
Our young people are the future leaders and decision makers of the nation. 4-H offers its members prime opportunities to explore and engage in leadership roles. By participating in a leadership role, young people can develop critical thinking, communication and life skills that will aid them in making future decisions.
Many leadership experiences are geared toward older youth, but younger youth also have the opportunity to become leaders early in their 4-H career.
If you ask many 4-H alumni to name one of the most valuable life skills they learned during their 4-H careers, many would list the confidence gained through participating in communications projects. 4-H youth development strives to equip the young people with the knowledge and skills they need to become successful adults. Effective communication and public speaking skills are vital to tomorrow’s leaders.
