National 4-H Conference is a full week of learning, participating in focus groups and meeting new people. The conference usually takes place the last week of March or the first week of April.
The National 4-H Conference includes young people, volunteer leaders and Extension staff from the 50 states, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and 10 Canadian Provinces. During this conference, delegates discuss issues, identify problems, and develop recommendations for the Cooperative Extension System in youth development education programming. Their reports keep National and State Extension Leaders knowledgeable of the needs, concerns and programming ideas to build youth potential. They also have the opportunity to meet with our congressmen and discuss current issues.
The Conference is held at the National 4-H Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Youth also have the opportunity to tour Washington D.C.
