Teens interested in developing Leadership Skills - Enroll as a 4-H Teen Teacher

January 22 - June 25, 2018
(6:00 PM - 7:30 PM )

University of Illinois Extension’s 4-H program is accepting teens ages 13 to 18 to enroll in the 4-H Teen Teachers program.  Organized by Diane Baker, 4-H Metro Military Educator, the teens focus on developing their leadership skills by helping lead presentations to younger elementary students in a variety of programs. Teens also get to help organize a leadership retreat for teens/by teens, take field trips to colleges, learn about careers, have opportunities to volunteer for community service, and join other local, state and even national 4-H teen groups like the Teen Hunger Ambassadors, Social Media Club and Youth Voices, ILLINI Summer Academies state team and many others.

There are two different locations 4-H Teen Teachers meet and teens pick the one that works best for them. The first meetings of the new year at each location are:

Monday, January 22nd – 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. at U of I Extension in Milan


Thursday, January 25th – 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. at Glenview Middle School, Mrs. Mojica’s classroom
