Sigma Lambda Chi

Sigma Lambda Chi is a unique chapter of Georgia 4-H for 4-H'ers in grades 9-12, 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.

The SLC Board is made up of local Senior 4-H'ers who are enrolled in Hawkinsville High School, private school, or homeschooled. Monthly meetings take place either at the office or 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. Sigma Lambda Chi board members make for positive present teen leaders and potential for great future adult leaders.
