Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Council Application Process

Submitted by Beth Hinshaw

The Youth Council Application information link will be available on the KYLF webpage on the State 4-H Website on August 1. Any Kansas 4-H member between the ages of 14 and 18 before January 1, 2018 may apply. This year's KYLF delegation will elect representatives from the four extension program areas (NE, NW, SE, SW).

Youth Council members work to involve youth with K-State Research and Extension in promoting, developing, implementing and evaluating Kansas Extension 4-H Youth Development programs in order to reflect the needs and interests of the youth in the state. Council members will also plan and conduct the Kansas Youth Leadership Forum, Citizenship in Action, Campference, 48 Hours of 4-H and other events.

Please encourage those outstanding young leaders in your local unit to apply. Application and photos are due on an online form on October 2, 2017 before 5 p.m. CST and 2 letters of reference must be postmarked on or before October 2, 2017 or they may be uploaded on the application site by October 2 at 5 p.m. The signature page should be postmarked by October 2, 2017. This year the elections will include the application process detailed above, and from those applications up to 12 young people per area will be invited to interview with a panel at the beginning of KYLF. From those that interview, up to 6 candidates will be selected to be in the election.
