Step Up and Lead

Step Up and Lead is designed for older elementary and middle school students (grades 4-8) who have demonstrated interest in or aptitude for leadership, whether in Student Council, Beta Club,  4-H Officers, Safety Patrol, or otherwise.  The conferences feature three exciting and interactive workshops, designed and facilitated by 4-H youth development professionals, to engage and empower youth in future leadership initiatives. These three sessions focus on building communication and presentation skillsunderstanding leadership and personality styles, and team building and group process skills.

Step Up and Lead is organized in partnership with Georgia 4-H, the Georgia Association of Elementary School Principals, and the Georgia Association of Middle School Prinicipals.

Multiple Step Up and Lead programs are held at locations across the state each fall and spring. To learn more and register for upcoming Step Up and Lead programs, visit the Georgia 4-H website.
