4-H Advisory Councils
4-H Advisory Councils are comprised of screened 4-H leaders or volunteers as well as 4-H youth and program partners. An advisory group can be in the form of a county, regional or project-based council. The advisory council assists the 4-H extension educator with:
- Planning of events offered during the 4-H year.
- Fundraising efforts.
- Youth recognition programs.
- Scholarships and camperships
- Recruitment of new youth audiences or new council members.
Committees meet throughout the year, through face-to-face meetings, virtual meetings, and email communications in order to conduct committee business.
Membership in all advisory councils should reflect the diverse 4-H delivery methods, geographic locations, program experiences and stakeholder representation in the Massachusetts 4-H Program.
If interested in serving on a 4-H advisory, please contact your local 4-H educator.
