Carroll County Youth Leadership Team (YLT)

Carroll County 4-H is looking for future and current leaders who would like to expand their skills and opportunities in the coming year.   We are currently looking for members to join our County Youth Leadership Team.  

The Youth Leadership Team (YLT) is a group of 4-H members who wish to take on a more active leadership role in the county.   They participate in key county events, such as Activities Day, Makers Expo, Awards Night, The Sandwich Fair.  The Leadership Team also provides support to State Events such as Teen Conference and Teen Leadership Weekend. 

The YLT is part of the Rockingham County 4-H Ambassadors 4-H Club whose many goals are to develop leadership, citizenship and life skills, serving as an Ambassador to the 4-H Program. Each month the 4-H Ambassadors meet to discuss projects and upcoming events, such as service learning activities, county events, leadership opportunities and have the chance to develop and utilize your skills and talents to positively impact the lives of others.
