The IMPACT Youth Leadership program teaches youth the skills to understand their own leadership styles, how teams work and an understanding of how the group can perform more effectively.  A strong component of the IMPACT program is that not only does the program identify leadership skills, but it also teaches those skills to the participants and then gives them an opportunity to put those skills into practice in their community.  ATLAS of Siouxland was a recipient of their generosity.

Learn about 4-H

Youth in grades 4-12 may choose a club based on location, age or special interest.  If club leader information is not available, please contact the Sioux County Extension Office.  We are happy to assist you in contacting a club leader.  It is important that you make contact with the club leaders, as they can give you specific information about the club such as meeting times and locations.

You should spend some time familiarizing yourself with the 4-H program.  Look for a project in your interest areas by checking in the Iowa 4-H project webpage and check out 4-H Project Hot Sheets and consider attending the NEW 4-H Night in the fall.  Check our calendar for more information about upcoming 4-H workshops and events throughout the year.
