The first Teen Leadership Council meeting was held on September 5, 2012 at 6:00pm in the agriculture building auditorium. There were six teens in attendance. The meeting started off with everyone making their own name tent to show their creativity and to describe a little more about themselves through their artwork. Following that activity was the American and 4-H Pledge. After a fun and exciting ice breaker game, teens were asked what did they think 4-H was. Everyone had really great responses as to what 4-H was all about! They were informed as to what a teen council is all about and the future goals for the council. Everyone was given a short survey to rank their top 3 choices as to what they wanted to learn more about in the upcoming meetings. The choices were:
- Public Speaking
- Workforce Readiness
- Parliamentary Procedure
- Experiential Learning
- Flag Etiquette
- Community Service
Following the survey, the rest of the 2012 meeting dates were set as follows:
- October 10
- November 14
- No meeting in December
The meeting dates for 2013 will be set shortly!
We also discussed National 4-H Week (October 7-13) and the hay bale decorating contest at the NC State Fair! Several council members plan on working on both projects!
Concluding the meeting, everyone played two more team-building games and the following photos were taken from those activities!
