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 deadline to register is Friday, January 22.  Registration is currently closed.

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 Extension 4-H Youth Building 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.
