4-H Kicks off Leadership Program for Teens in Bladen County

Thursday, June 27 at 5 pm, Bladen County 4-H will host a kick off for their new program 4-H LEADS: Preparing for Tomorrow, Succeeding Today at the Bladen County 4-H office in the Powell Melvin Agriculture Building in Elizabethtown, NC. Rising 9th through 12th graders are encouraged to register for this NEW teen leadership program using this link by Tuesday, June 25.

The 4-H LEADS program is designed with goals of helping our teens develop leadership skills and find opportunities to practice them; learn about tips and tools to be successful applying to college, scholarships, and jobs; and develop skills in decision making and goal setting. Registering to be a part of this group will ensure that you find out about upcoming workshops, forums, and activities designed especially for teen leaders in our community.

4-H LEADS: Preparing for Tomorrow, Succeeding Today is funded through a Community Innovation grant from The Cooperative Extension Program at North Carolina Agriculture & Technical State University in Greensboro, NC. The funded initiative will provide workshops and forums to offer parents and youth
information and tools to be successful in applying for scholarships/colleges, while building valuable leadership skills. We will offer various workshops and programs throughout the summer and early fall and
then strive to stay connected with participants throughout the year as 4-h opportunities arise.

4-H is North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, equipping more than 247,000 young people each year with the skills to succeed and improve the world around them. 4-H programs and camps encourage young people to “learn by doing,” helping them to develop into active, contributing citizens. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinate 4-H programs statewide.

If you have questions about 4-H LEADS or any of our 4-H activities for youth, please contact Stacie Kinlaw at (910) 862-4591 or by email at
