4-H YOUTH Council

The Youth Council’s purpose is to maintain and strengthen the 4-H program in partnership with the Montana Cooperative Extension Service, the Lewis and Clark 4-H Council, and the Lewis and Clark 4-H Foundation. 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 Youth Council provides a youth voice to adult proceedings in the Council, Committees, and Foundation.
