at Iowa State University, Ames.


Registration Now Closed for 2015

Be a part of the FUN and Learning!


This FREE Retreat is designed as a train-the-trainer event and participants are encouraged to use information from the sessions to teach 4-H members in their clubs and counties. The registration is closed for this year, but check back next year for more information. 

Friday evening's focus is on learning about new, hands on activities that your club could develop into service projects. Meet at the Extension 4-H Youth Building. Check out the Sessions descriptions for details.

Saturday morning workshops meet at the Memorial Union and the Saturday afternoon sessions are either at the Memorial Union or in labs on campus.

The annual State Volunteer Retreat is planned and implemented by a committee of 4-H volunteers and sponsored by ISU Extension and Outreach 4-H. Thanks to the many volunteers and ISU staff and faculty who will lead the workshops.
