Announcing *NEW* LEAD Academy

The Texas 4-H Youth Development Program is excited to announce a new opportunity for our High School age 4-H members. This year, June 10-13 in College Station, we will be offering LEAD Academy. 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.

LEAD Academy participants may also be competing at Texas 4-H Roundup, but LEAD Academy is NOT limited to Roundup competitors.
