Fall Forum

Fall Forum is an opportunity for youth and adult leaders to attend the statewide training weekend with county and state staff. Planned by a team of youth and adult volunteers from the  Wisconsin 4-H Leaders Council with the support of county and state staff; promote to youth and adult leaders in your county! Our hope is that 4-H youth and adult leaders will come together to connect, collaborate, celebrate, and continue building excitement and energy for a new year of 4-H learning.

Wisconsin 4-H Leadership Council

The purpose of Fall Forum is to:

  • Provide an educational opportunity for youth and adult volunteers
  • Develop youth and adult partnerships
  • Create an engaging and welcoming environment to facilitate discussion between counties and regions
  • Encourage diversity of thought, perspective, interests, and people
  • Promote strategies for youth and adults to reach underserved and underrepresented groups

Each county is encouraged to send a delegation of youth and adults

  • Youth 7th – 13th grade
  • Adult volunteer leaders
  • Staff are invited and encouraged to attend as your schedule permits

This is a great opportunity for a team of county/state staff, volunteers, and youth to work together and present an interactive workshop for youth and adults as well as staff from throughout Wisconsin.
