The County 4-H Parent/Leaders’ Association is composed of volunteer 4-H leaders who meet and work together to improve and enhance opportunities available to 4-H members. These volunteer leaders:
* Are dedicated to the well-being and development of youth.
* Assume direct responsibilities in working with youth.
* Believe in a helping relationship between youth and adults.
* Seek to improve their own abilities in working with youth.
Any interested volunteer 4-H leader may belong to the association. All 4-H leaders within the county are invited to association meetings. Meetings are held in September, November, January, March, and May on the 3rd Tuesday, beginning at 5:30 pm at the Victoria County 4-H Activity Center.
The County 4-H Adult Leaders’ Association serves volunteer 4-H leaders. Leaders exchange ideas, discuss mutual concerns and help each other. Association meetings provide leaders with information about 4-H and working with youth. It is a time of learning, sharing and fellowship.
The County 4-H Adult Leaders’ Association develops and supports volunteer 4-H leaders in their roles with 4-H clubs, members and activities. The association recognizes three important ideas:
* The primary business of 4-H is the needs of youth.
* Volunteer 4-H leaders play a key role in the system of helping 4-H youth.
* Adults who volunteer their time and talents to work with the 4-H program warrant the encouragement and support of an organized group of peers.
