What is leadership?

Are you a leader? If you positively influence and help others for a shared goal, you are a leader! Leaders aren’t just elected to an office or position. You can also be a member of committees, small groups and teams. You can develop your individual leadership skills by learning more about yourself and how you work with others. In the 4-H leadership project you will learn leadership principles, help plan 4-H programs, and recruit new members.

4-H leadership experiences include, but are not limited to:

  • 4-H club office
  • serving on committees
  • promoting the 4-H program to other youth
  • participation in county, district or state 4-H committees, councils, etc.
  • leading an activity with your club
  • serving as a summer Junior Leader for the county
  • teaching others how to do something
  • sharing your expertise with others
  • guiding others on a field trip
  • leading the 4-H and American Pledge
  • showing others around a location that you know well

Include these in your Project Record Book. Remember the older you are, the more this section is weighted and the more the judges expect you to lead. Take the step!
