iLEAD: Intermediate Leadership Conference
We are excited to now invite all 11-13 year old youth from across Florida to the University of Florida’s campus for a two night and full day leadership development experience. They will have the opportunity to connect with others from across the state of Florida and explore potential interests to ignite their spark in life. These interests will be explored through on and offsite engaging educational workshops that will connect them to career field experts unique to this experience.
For more information about Intermediate State, contact the Florida 4-H Citizenship/Leadership Coordinator, Derby Sale at email@example.com.
At this event in Tallahassee, 4-H members can develop skills to debate, analyze legislation, and speak publicly, all while making new friends and having a whole lot of fun. At this civic education event, attendees can sponsor a bill, amend, or lobby it, then debate the issues on the Capitol house and senate floors.
Legislature is open to youth ages 13 to 18 as of September 1 of the current 4-H year. For more information, contact Florida 4-H Citizenship/Leadership Coordinator, Derby Sale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
