Dare to Lead 2018 Teen Leadership Conference

January 13-14, 2018 (9:00 AM - 11:15 AM )

Decatur Conference Center & Hotel Illinois
4191 US 36 West
Decatur, IL 62522 (Macon County)

DARE to build upon your leadership skills. If you want to hang out with other teens while you learn to be a better leader, this conference is for you. TOTALLY REDESIGNED WITH TEENS IN MIND.

This year’s event is open to ANY Illinois high school teen in grades 9 to 12. We’re excited to open the doors of this event to teens who belong to any type of organization, club or sports team – any teen who desires to step up and DARE to LEAD.

The conference is Saturday & Sunday, January 13-14, 2018 at the Decatur Conference Center & Hotel. Workshop sessions will focus on public speaking, watching your digital identity, social media marketing, advocating for a cause, becoming a leader, finding your leadership niche, and youth and adult partnerships.

Teens need to attend in a county, club, organization or school “group” (Illinois 4-H’ers included) and each group must be accompanied by an adult chaperone (age 21 or older).

If you want to go, you need to contact the 4-H office NOW. The staff will enter all the registrations for the county. Cost is $130 for 4-H members or $175 for other group members. Space is limited and on a first-come, first -served basis. If you are the only one from your area who is interested, ask your Extension office if neighboring counties have a group that you can join. (“Groups” are for chaperoning purposes only; they are not required for conference work.)

Registration will close on Monday, December 4. DARE to LEAD – and join us!
