Making a Difference with Effective 4-H Club Meetings

Last night, Dr. Paula Davis taught us how we can make a difference by empowering youth to plan and lead effective club meetings.  We even practiced parliamentary procedure by making trail mix.  Whitney Cherry explained proper 4-H emblem usage and how to secure permission to use the 4-H name and emblem for your club.

All of the games and reference materials are available from our website at: http://nwdistrict.ifas.ufl.edu/4hn/category/volunteer-training/make-a-difference-mondays/.   The door prize winner for August was Edward Owen from Walton County.  He won a 4-H Club Kit, containing everything you need to run a club meeting.  September winners will be announced next week.

Due to feedback from volunteers like you, we have adjusted our training schedule so that the next session, October 21st, will be on Risk Management.  4-H Specialist Dr. Dale Pracht will be sharing valuable best practices for creating safe and secure environments for 4-H club meetings and events.   Please invite any 4-H teens, parents or volunteers that you feel would benefit from this session!

Volunteers like you help 4-H make a difference in over 300,000 Florida 4-H youth each year!
