Ohio 4-H Teen Leadership Council

The Ohio 4-H Teen Leadership Council (TLC) is a statewide group of 4-H teens and young 4-H alumni that provides a youth stakeholder perspective in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of Ohio 4-H programming. In this process, council members develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and aspirations needed for future success. Council members share advice and recommendations to 4-H professionals in order to improve, strengthen, and expand the Ohio 4-H program. Members also make recommendations regarding opportunities for Ohio 4-H teen programming. They serve as a sounding board for Ohio 4-H program direction.

Applications are now being accepted. Applications and all related materials are due (received, not postmarked) by Friday, August 11, 2017 to the state 4-H office by mail or email. (Note that 4-H Educator, Beth Boomershine, will be out of state beginning August 4, so requests for reference letters must be made in advance of August 4.)

Individuals must be 14-18 as of January 1 of the year of application to apply for white, green, silver, and gold levels. Platinum level applicants must be 18-20 years old (as of January 1) when they apply.
