National 4-H Conference

National 4-H Conference is a future-focused program that aims to build strong leaders through roundtable discussions, town hall meetings, group assemblies, and visits with national legislators.  Being selected to represent our state at this conference is one of Georgia 4-H’s highest honors.

The unique environment of the program allows delegates to engage with national 4-H leadership (including USDA and NIFA) and to learn how to better youth-adult partnerships. The program reinforces the ties 4-H has to the Cooperative Extension Service and the land-grant university systems that make 4-H possible.  Roundtable discussions generate ideas for club and community improvement and students are encouraged to implement these ideas in their home states. Through the roundtable process, students also build valuable leadership skills including team-building, flexibility, and communications.  On “Capitol Hill Day”, delegates have the opportunity to become more familiar with the national government by meeting with the Secretary of Agriculture and their own Senators and Representatives to discuss prominent issues the students see in their home states and communities.
