Kansas 4-H Action Team Guidelines:

Kansas 4-H Action Teams serve to bring youth, volunteers, and K-State Research and Extension staff together to plan and conduct educational state 4-H programs, events and activities. Input from action teams assures grassroots involvement, provides leadership opportunities, and creates a cadre of informed, motivated volunteers across the state. Action teams may either be on-going or convened for a specific time to design and implement a specific program or initiative.  Decisions regarding the formation of a new team or the dissolution of an existing team lie with the Kansas 4-H State Program Leader and the faculty liaison.


Action team principles include:   

  • A commitment to the mission of K-State Research and Extension and the Kansas 4-H Program
  • Understanding and support of the principles of positive youth development
  • Shared partnership of youth, adult volunteers and Extension staff
  • An appointed membership aligned with Kansas demographics of differing ages, genders, geographic and cultural representation preferred
