The Leadership in Action program is designed to recognize the work of Junior (7th – 8th grade) and Senior (9th – 12th grade) 4-H’ers as leaders in their communities. 4-H’ers will identify an issue or need in the community or an issue related to agriculture or the environment. Once this issue or need has been selected, the 4-H’er will determine ways to make a difference and then enact his/her plan. The process focuses on leadership engagement by the 4-H’er. https://georgia4h.org/programs/focus-areas/citizenship/community-global-affairs/leadership-in-action/ Athens, GA - (170.0 Miles)
