Adult Advisor Expectation Statement



On behalf of approximately 400 youth attending the 2020 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 portion of the handbook provides that information. The adult advisor orientation teleconferences and on-site orientation will help to prepare you for Youth Conference.

The 2020 Youth Conference handbook will help you understand the conference as a whole and also help prepare you with specific information for Adult Advsiors. Be sure to review the handbook in preparation for your role.
