Maryland State 4-H Teen Leadership Conference

2012 State 4-H Teen Focus

One World, One 4-H, One Dream…To Make the Best Better
June 24-28, 2012
Maryland State 4-H Teen Leadership Conference will be held at the beautiful University of Maryland Eastern Shore. This is the premier, statewide
annual 4-H event for teens and the adults who work with them. The mission of Teen Focus is to provide educational experiences on a campus
setting that help teens to develop life skills and leadership abilities to make decisions about their future educational and professional endeavors.
The Goals for 4-H Teen Focus are:
To provide a high-quality educational experience for 4-H youth ages 14-18 and adults that work with them;

To promote 4-H as a major statewide educational youth program;

To promote an understanding of the value of diversity among Teen Focus

participants;
To provide educational, recreational and social experiences for teens that would

not normally be available at a county or district level;
To provide educational experiences through seminars, workshops, and service

learning that will enhance life skill development and support 4-H project work;
To provide first hand experiences on college campus exposing participants to

“college life”.

To provide opportunities for teens and adults to specifically develop leadership

related life skills; 
To enhance each delegate’s sense of personal and social responsibility through an environment that fosters independence, accountability, decision-making and time management.

Now that you know a little more about Teen Focus, I’d like to invite you to join us at this wonderful event! Check out the attached course offering and information on our exciting day trips to Tangier and Assateague.
