Extension 4-H and Youth Committee

The Clayton County Extension Council appoints 9 adults and 4 youth to serve on the 4-H & Youth Development Committee. The purpose of the committee is to support and advise 4-H staff, volunteers, 4-H members and 4-H families in conducting meaningful educational experiences to help youth grow and reach their full potential; to serve as a liaison between the Clayton County Extension Office, 4-H’ers, their parents and other volunteers regarding the 4-H club programs and activities; to set policies as deemed necessary to promote, enhance and regulate the 4-H program in Clayton County; and to establish the rules and regulations of the 4-H & FFA program for the local county fair.  The Area Youth Field Specialist and County Youth Coordinator serve as advisors for this committee. The committee usually meets 4-5 times per year.
