The adult track will be new this year. Feel free to send in multiple submissions with as many ideas as you can think of! Both youth and adults may submit ideas.

LEAD Academy is a Texas 4-H conference being held June 8-11, 2020 in College Station for 4-H members currently in high school and our 4-H adult volunteers and parents!
Youth attendees will have an opportunity to learn about college opportunities and what it takes to get there, serve their community, and gain valuable life skills in a true college setting. Our goal of this activity will be to provide the opportunity for young people to connect, learn, engage, lead and impact their communities, their country and their world. The event will be designed to engage youth in hands-on educational activities in which they explore, practice and master existing and newly developed skills/knowledge in civic engagement, civic education and personal development. The objective is to provide youth a broad-based learning experience in which they will acquire practical knowledge and skills to reinforce the attitudes and motivation that will give them a heightened sense of responsibility and capacity to connect as active members of their communities, nation and world. From this experience, we hope the youth attending will apply what was learned in their real world experiences in which they develop leadership skills using their voices, work, ideas and/or behavior to make a difference in their community, country and world.
Adult attendees will have the chance to connect with other volunteers and parents. Our goal is to provide useful information for 4-H volunteers and parents so they may learn how to improve their skills as a 4-H leader in their community. The event is designed to provide workshops that are practical and helpful to adults involved with the 4-H program. From this experience, we hope our 4-H volunteers will be able to apply what they learn to continue to help our members grow into productive members of society that make a positive impact in their lives and communities.
