Collegiate 4-H Facilitators

Collegiate 4-H Facilitators provide leadership for key components of the National 4-H Conference. Facilitators lead delegates through team building activities, “citizenship excursions” as well as round table discussions —which leads to the recommendations that youth provide to the Secretary of Agriculture and others to strengthen the 4-H Youth Development Program.


The National 4-H Headquarters is pleased to announce an opportunity for Collegiate 4-H Members to serve as Collegiate Facilitators at the 2008 National 4-H Conference in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The conference will be held from Saturday, March 29 – Thursday, April 3, 2008. Collegiate Facilitators will be required to arrive Thursday, March 27 th and depart on April 3rd.

This year’s conference promises to be an exciting event for all involved, as more than 400 delegates from across the country come together to explore the theme “Green A.I.D. – Acquire, Inform, Deliver”. The theme reflects the question, “As society becomes more environmentally conscious, how can the 4-H Youth Development Program “A.I.D.” in enhancing socially significant and relevant programming to increase the environmental awareness of our clubs, our communities, our country, and our world.”

Collegiate Facilitators play a key role throughout the conference as they lead delegates in a variety of team building activities, round table discussions, and lead “citizenship excursions” through D.C. Facilitators will undergo training in facilitation techniques as well as develop skills in leading groups on field trips, through icebreakers and team building exercises.

Facilitators are expected to participate in all activities during the Conference and will depart on April 3. All travel expenses will be reimbursed. Meals and lodging are provided as part of the conference.
