4-H Council Information

4-H Council

The Council’s purpose is to maintain and strengthen the 4-H program in partnership with the Montana Cooperative Extension Service. This includes advocating for and promoting educational activities in Lewis and Clark County, assisting with leadership, development, and life skills in youth and adults, and providing a channel of communication and a forum for the exchange of ideas among leaders, youth, Extension personnel, and other organizations. The Lewis and Clark 4-H Council works in conjunction with the Foundation to plan and conduct fundraising activities necessary to carry out the business of the Council and approve the annual operating budget.
