Junior 4-H

Junior 4-H'ers are 7th & 8th grade 4-H members. Meetings focus on community service, leadership development, and public speaking.

Junior 4-H Meetings are held on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday's of the month from 3:00 - 3:45 PM in the 4-H room at the Pat Haralson Civic Center.

Certified Teen Leader Training

Of the many opportunities in Georgia 4-H to develop leadership, one of the most positive experiences is the opportunity for older 4-H’ers to mentor younger 4-H’ers by serving as teen leaders in their county program and also at district and state events. Teen leaders have specific responsibilities and leadership roles. A good teen leader can be the lifeline of the county 4-H program and 4-H leaders. Seventh graders and up are invited to attend Certified Teen Leader Training. Participants will receive lunch, a magnetic name badge, and a teen leader manual. A training will be offered in August after the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. Save the Date: TBA
