Teen Leader Conference


Teen Leader Conference

Youth Leadership Opportunity

The Arkansas 4-H Teen Leader Conference is a three-day conference for 4-H members ages 14-19. Each year the conference focuses on a specific topic and helps to prepare teens for leadership and service responsibilities in their local clubs and counties. TLC is traditionally held in June at the C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center.

The conference is completely planned and put on by the Arkansas 4-H State Officer team and Arkansas 4-H Ambassadors. State Officers and Ambassadors form committees to plan out the entire conference, workshops, and funshops. They plan fun evening activities such as a banquet, a dance, and a service project to round out the TLC event. Delegates attend breakout sessions to learn relevant material to implement in their home counties.
