4-H'ers meeting with US representative Derek Kilmer

Members must be enrolled in Leadership, Service Learning, KYG or Citizenship projects by June 1st.

Junior Leaders are intermediates (ages 11-13). Teen Leaders are seniors (ages 14-18). All intermediate and and senior members are encouraged to enroll in a Leadership project. Members who enroll in a Leadership project are members who take a role in leading the group or other members.

Know Your Government (KYG) is a “short term” project that meets at the County level. High School age members (grades 9-12) may participate. Youth do not need to be enrolled in a 4-H club to participate.

Ambassadors are members ages 14-18 years old. General focus is on fun and service to the community and other 4-H programs within the county, state, and nationally. Teens may be elected as representatives to the County 4-H Council, State Fair Board, or State 4-H Advisory Board.

WA State Equity & Inclusion Task Force: ​The purpose of the Washington State 4-H Teen Equity and Inclusion Task Force is to facilitate and support an inclusive 4-H youth organization. Using compassion and empathy, we strive to create an open and safe environment to celebrate and embrace our diversity.
