4-H Teen Councils

County, District, and State Youth Councils

The 4-H Program utilizes many tools or methods to provide educational experiences for youth. The 4-H Council (or other relevant named group) at county, district, and state levels is one of these tools. A 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.

Duval 4-H County Council / Teen Leadership Club

The County Council is the voice of all the 4-H'ers in the county. There are representatives from the 4-H Clubs and all other 4-H groups in the county. One of the roles of the council system is to provide representative youth voices in the district and state programming levels. Therefore the county council has the opportunity to select and have representative youth participate in the District Council and the State 4-H Council.

All Senior level 4-H'ers are invited to join the council
