4-H Council is an elected representative group of 4-H members who meet, discuss, plan, and assist in carrying out 4-H programs and activities in the interest of the total membership. The Council provides a link between local clubs or groups and County 4-H Programs, between County Programs and District 4-H Programs, and between District Programs and State 4-H Programs.
WHY A 4-H COUNCIL?
Participation in a 4-H Council provides the means for the personal growth of 4-H members through citizenship and leadership activities. Many teens are looking for leadership roles and are interested in giving back to 4-H. Council participation gives 4-H'ers the opportunity to exercise their leadership knowledge and be of valuable assistance to 4-H Programs while youth further develop their leadership and citizenship skills.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE
Youth are involved, as they are in clubs, with determining the rules for self-governance. These may take the form of County Council bylaws/Constitution. The County Council bylaws and Constitution patterned after the state bylaws and constitution serve as the organizational base. Learn more about County Council Here
