We are excited to announce that this year's California 4-H State Leadership Conference (SLC) will be bigger and better than ever before. We are thrilled to offer two programming tracks at this year's SLC! From July 28-30, we will have a programming track specifically designed for Intermediate participants (ages 11-13 by the start of SLC), while the track from July 27-30 will cater to Senior participants (ages 14-19 by the start of SLC.) We are thrilled to welcome youth ages 11-13 for the first time at SLC!

What is 4-H
In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. We are America’s largest youth development organization—empowering nearly six million young people across the U.S. with the skills to lead for a lifetime
4-H programs are grounded in the belief that kids learn best by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles. Kids can concentrate on one focus area or they can try a variety of programs throughout their 4-H experience.
As a 4-H volunteer, you are important to help our youth with "learn-by-doing". You will work side-by-side with 4-H youth, where you grow together in shared responsibility and decision-making.
Volunteering in 4-H is flexible and rewarding. Share your expertise and experience with the youth and other volunteers to make things happen!
