town hall announcement


Did you miss the Illinois 4-H Town Hall? What a wonderful evening of youth sharing how 4-H has impacted their lives, learning about youth leadership opportunities, and our leadership sharing about the Illinois 4-H program, Illinois Extension, and updates from the National 4-H Council Board of Trustees. We are fortunate to have outstanding leaders and staff in Illinois to guide the Illinois 4-H program and build our next generation of leaders.  

The Illinois 4-H Virtual Town Hall is now available online. We hope you will take the time to listen and learn about Illinois 4-H today and our plans for the future. We know you each have a passion for the Illinois 4-H program as an alumni or friend of the 4-H program, and you care about the next generation of youth and the impacts they will make on our communities and state. We hope you will continue to advocate and share your 4-H story! We have a lot to be proud of!
