2020 Annual Leader Training: Leading, Learning, & Laughing

Each year, youth and adult volunteers and leaders from every chartered 4-H club and group are encouraged to participate in Annual Leader Training. The training topic changes each year to focus on subjects of importance to the whole Wisconsin 4-H community.  In 2020, the area of focus was the three parts of a meeting: Business, Education, and Recreation, or Leading, Learning, and Laughing.  Videos of training sessions and other resources are available.


There are materials and support documents developed to support each session.  See below for links.
