Leap Ahead with 4-H: Nevada 4-H Leaders’ Update 2008

Posted 11/27/2007

Hundreds of 4-H volunteers from across Nevada will come together to share ideas for their local 4-H programs at the Nevada 4-H Leaders’ Update, February 22-23, held at the University of Nevada, Reno Redfield Campus in Reno, Nevada.

The forum, supported by Monsanto and National 4-H Council, will bring 4-H volunteers together to network and learn about innovative programs that will help bring fresh perspectives and activities to 4-H programs across the state of Nevada.

"Whether you are a new leader, have been involved with 4-H for 3, 10, or 25 years, or you’re a teen or junior leader for a community club, project club, after school or military program, or other 4-H groups in rural and urban communities, you’ll learn new things, meet new people, and come away feeling re-energized about 4-H," comments Jill Tingey, 4-H Volunteer Assistant.

Leaders will participate in four different workshops and two general sessions throughout the weekend. Topics include: Partnering with Youth to Lead Activities, Livestock Skillathon Training, Operation Military Kids Mobile Tech Lab, and Science, Engineering and Technology in 4-H. As a treat, Dr. Cathann Kress, Director of National 4-H Headquarters, will be presenting the Essential Elements of 4-H.
