2019 Adult Advisor Expectation Statement



On behalf of approximately 400 youth attending the 2019 Wisconsin 4-H & Youth Conference, thank you! As an Adult Advisor you give a most valuable gift ‑ your time. Conference success depends on enthusiastic, creative and committed volunteers like you.

While you will work hard, we hope you have an enjoyable and rewarding experience. You will learn something new about today’s youth, the variety of 4-H programming throughout Wisconsin, and the fine quality of leaders who share your enthusiasm for 4-H. Maximize your experience by getting involved! Your own personal enthusiasm is contagious and affects the overall event.

Your experience will be most positive when you are well oriented to the responsibilities and tasks that await you. The “Adult Advisor Tool Kit” provides that information. The adult advisor orientation teleconferences and on-site orientation will help to prepare you for Youth Conference.

This “Adult Advisor Reference Guide” is designed to supplement the “2019 Wisconsin 4-H & Youth Conference Registration Timetable and Participant Guide.” Be sure to review both the Registration Timetable and the Adult Advisor Tool Kit in preparation for your role.

2019 Orientations

Due to changes in Adult Advisor Roles and our programmatic and positive youth development goals for WI 4-H & Youth Conference, we are requiring participation in one of our two Statewide Face-to-Face Orientations. Registration for the Face-to-Face Meetings will be a part of the 4HOnline WI 4-H & Youth Conference Registration Process.
