Everyone in a club work together as a team. No position is more important than another. Adult volunteers support club officers, and club officers support adult volunteers. Presidents, vice presidents, secretaries, treasurers, historians, reporters, and other officers all do their part to keep the club running smoothly. Members play a role in that too.

Lead in Your Community

4-H offers lots of ways to lead in giving back to your community. Youth leaders involved in 4-H are generous and have learned many skills that are important to 4-H and the areas where they live. How will you give back?

Check with the Positive Youth Development (PYD) staff person in your county to find out how you can help.

Others may feel ready to take what they have learned and lead—individually or in a group setting. Still other young people seek a combination of both. Whatever you are looking for, there’s an educational opportunity for you. Consider the following:
