    Dates and Deadlines
    Mark these 4-H activity dates on your calendars
    Save the date - SW winter project leader training, February 1
    Plan to join fellow 4-H adult volunteers to network and gain new ideas for helping youth learn through projects. One of our overarching 4-H program goals is that “Youth will learn by developing a passion in their area of interest”. To support this goal, we need volunteers to share their interests and lead project learning opportunities to help youth identify and pursue areas of interest. The SW winter project leader training will be held Sat, Feb 1 at SMSU in Marshall.
