4-H Youth Development
4-H is a nationwide program led by state land-grant universities in cooperation with local county/district extension councils. In Kansas, 4-H is the largest youth educational program, aside from public schools. Each of the four H's on the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop in 4-H:
Head: critical thinking, problem solving;
Heart: self-discipline, integrity, communication;
Hands: serving others; and
Health: choosing healthy lifestyles.
In 4-H, youth have fun with a purpose!

LVCO YOUTH LEADERS
The Leavenworth County Youth Leaders met on August 19, 2021 @ 6:30pm, Achievement Night. Roll Call was taken by sign up sheet. All Youth Leaders present talked briefly about their most memorable leadership experience or lesson this year and a leadership goal for next year. It was also announced that there is talk about combining the Youth Leaders with the County Council. This would help with less meetings and the Youth Leaders could still keep doing their events like Day Camp and the Food Drive and/or Cookie Drive. All questions or concerns were asked to go to Sonya Murphy with the Extension Office. Meeting was adjourned and Youth Leaders enjoyed Casey’s Pizza!
