4-H in Jefferson County

Youth Representatives

The Jefferson County 4-H Youth Representatives strive to plan and carry out county-wide programs and events for all Jefferson County 4-H members.  Youth Representatives are open to any 4-H member age 12 and up currently in a Jefferson County 4-H club. 

Jefferson County Youth Representatives are expected to attend Youth Rep meetings.  Youth Reps meet the 2nd Monday of every month at the Extension Office.  By being a Youth Rep, your 4-H club will get first- hand information and news to take back to your club meetings.

Leadership opportunities above the club level are available for Youth Reps.  Serving as a Youth Rep looks great on your 4-H records and college application!!!

We would like to personally invite you to come and find out what we are all about!!!
