  1. If Only I Knew What My 4-H Educator REALLY Thought

    (301) If Only I Knew What My 4-H Educator REALLY Thought


    Calling brave advisors!  Whether you are new or a seasoned advisor, any advisor who is open to learning is welcome to come to this class!  The plan is to have fun, celebrate your role as a 4-H advisor, and see if there are things we can improve. Many 4-H Educators from around Ohio were polled (by a 4-H volunteer) and asked if they had "ONE THING" to share with 4-H advisors, what would it be? The responses covered a wide range of topics including important elements of a 4-H club meetings, boundaries, encouragement, conflict, and more! The goal is to review their responses and look for ways to support our common goal of Positive Youth Development through our own actions and circles of influence.  It will be enlightening, challenging, and require some self-reflection in order Make the Best, Better. Limited to: 50 participants.  Presented by: Amy Fleshman 

  2. How do You Build Successful Youth-Adult Partnerships

    (310) How do You Build Successful Youth-Adult Partnerships


    4-H Youth Development identifies youth-adult partnerships as a foundation of the program giving youth a voice in issues, programs, and organizations that affect them. Even with that as a guiding principle or core value, 4-H professionals hear from youth that do not feel they have a voice or that their ideas are heard.  Adult volunteers share their frustrations about youth not sharing their ideas or being active. This session introduces participants to ways to build and maintain successful youth-adult partnerships and barriers to the partnership. Limited to: 60 participants.  Presented by: Pamela Montgomery

Limited to: 100 participants. Presented by: Melinda Ryan & Champaign County Youth
