UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Young 4-H members from across Pennsylvania recently took part in a day-long event called State Leadership Conference, Junior. Seventy-two participants, aged 10-13, attended the conference at Penn State’s University Park campus. The theme was “BUILD: Inspire, Influence, Impact.”
The conference focused on enhancing foundational leadership skills to support the growth of younger members within 4-H. Teen 4-H members serving on the State Council led hands-on workshops and activities, State Project Ambassadors hosted a project exploration fair for participants to check out various 4-H project opportunities and Joe Johnson from the Jana Marie Foundation served as the keynote speaker.
During the closing ceremony, Pennsylvania 4-H inducted a new team of State Project Ambassadors to begin their terms.
