2021 Leadership Lab

Leadership Lab is held annually in June and 4-H members from ages 13-18 may attend.  This event provides a variety of leadership, recreation, and project enhancement workshops that participants are challenged to take back to their own county and implement.  District 4-H Council Delegates from the 21 counties are highly encouraged to attend and participate in the District 4-H Council Business Meeting which includes the election of officers for the new 4-H year.  Candidates for District 4-H Council will present their campaign speech and participate in a question/answer session in front of the voting delegates.




2021 Dates TBA

The Youth Agricultural Lifetime Leadership opportunity is a 6 day exploration for youth to experience West Texas agricultural production. Participants will tour Texas Tech University, West Texas A&M University and Angelo State University. Tour attendees will also be challenged in a variety of ways to improve on their leadership skills as agriculture  spokespersons. Participants will see how numerous agricultural related issues are challenged on a daily basis by groups targeting our food supply system. Participants will be provided opportunities to defend agricultural related topics based off of the information they learn from the tour presenters.

Approximately 200 youth from throughout the state of Texas are typically served.
These programs feature quail, deer, bass, redfish/marine species, waterfowl or livestock, with an aim to equip youth with the resources and determination needed to make a difference in conservation and land stewardship throughout their lives. Through this experience, participants are introduced to habitat management, hone their communication skills, learn to work together as a team, and develop a land & conservation ethic.
