What is Junior Leadership Club?

A group of older 4-H youth who participates in community service projects in Fairfield County. Junior Leaders also are responsible for planning the 4-H theme for the year. Many Junior Leaders promote 4-H in the schools in Fairfield County by giving demonstrations and putting up posters in their school. They also help run the Fairfield County Fair in October. They also help out at the Summerfest, judging at the fair and in the summer, and the advisor's banquet.

When do they meet?

The Junior Leaders typically meet monthly on Mondays at 6 PM and ending at 7:30 PM. (see above for exact dates)

When can you join?

Any time during the year. All you have to do is show up at the meetings. In order to be considered a member of the Fairfield County Junior Leadership club, we ask that you attend 6 meetings (events can be included in this count).

What do we do at the meetings?

Jr. Leaders discuss and plan what is going to happen this year in Fairfield County 4-H. We also play really fun group games. We have four committees in the club, they are as follows: Community Service, Website/Newsletter, Advisor Banquet and Fundraising. The community service committee organizes the community service the club will do. The website/newsletter committee is responsible for writing articles and creating a newsletter informing the county of what the club is doing.  The advisory banquet committee plans the advisors end of the year banquet. The fundraising committee comes up with ideas to raise money to be able to put on a year-end banquet for the 4-H advisors of the county.
