Sigma Lambda Chi

Sigma Lambda Chi is a unique chapter of Georgia 4-H for 4-H'ers in grades nine through twelve, also known as Senior 4-H'ers. The Greek letters stand for Service, Leadership, and Citizenship. It is used as a method to reach teens who want to gain more experience in those important aspects of their lives.

Meetings are held monthly, in addition to regular 4-H Club meetings at Hawkinsville High School, and include Seniors who are enrolled in private school or are homeschooled. They usually take place in a local restaurant, so that the teens get more of an out-of-the-classroom experience. During these meetings, 4-H'ers discuss different ways they can be more active citizens and leaders. They are also responsible for planning different community service activities, fundraisers, and lessons for their Cloverleaf Project Clubs, where they give back what 4-H has taught them over the years by teaching their experiences to younger 4-H'ers.

Sigma Lambda Chi became such a popular concept statewide, that it also began reaching 4-H'ers in other states including Michigan, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Mississippi. Many counties in Georgia have had Sigma Lambda Chi chapters for over twenty years, and some are just getting started. No matter how old or young, big or small, a chapter is, they are always one of the most effective groups of Teen Leaders 4-H has the privilege of producing.
