THE NEW YAC

Are you in 6-12th grade and looking to help plan and participate in a few fun adventures?  Our Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) has a new twist!  Introducing the new Youth ADVENTURE Committee!

What will the new YAC do?

  • Any Winnebago County 4-H youth in grades 6-12 can join YAC. There is no selection process.
  • Youth that would like to join will meet a few times a year to plan three to four adventure and fun-filled activities for 4-H teens to attend. (ex: Snow tubing, kayaking, bowling, zip lining, Brewer or Timber Rattler game, etc). The YOUTH decide on and help plan the outings.
  • We are focusing on the 4-H Essential Element of BELONGING. YAC will help provide opportunities for teens to get to know peers from other clubs in the county and have fun in a safe environment.

To sign up for YAC, visit:  https://forms.office.com/r/NkDzdBZCaV
