This summer, youth age 12-18 can participate in a fun and engaging Teen Teachers training program taught by 4-H Youth Development Educator Shannon Range.  

Teens will learn about youth development and how to create and lead activities, games, ice breakers, and more for youth age 5-10.  They will utilize their leadership skills with Cloverbuds age 5-8 in a Cloverbud Cooking program at the second meeting.

On the last day of the series, Teens will participate in a culminating event where they will demonstrate their skills and leadership abilities with parents or other guests.  In addition, Teens Teachers will be recognized, receive certificates of accomplishment, and a token of our appreciation at the event.
