Two Incredible Programs, One SLC


We are excited to announce that this year's California 4-H State Leadership Conference (SLC) will be bigger and better than ever before. We are thrilled to offer two programming tracks at this year's SLC! From July 28-30, we will have a programming track specifically designed for Intermediate participants (ages 11-13 by the start of SLC), while the track from July 27-30 will cater to Senior participants (ages 14-19 by the start of SLC.) We are thrilled to welcome youth ages 11-13 for the first time at SLC!


About the Intermediate (11-13 years old) Program Track

The State Leadership conference for Intermediate 4-H members is designed to give participants ages 11-13 an opportunity to learn and practice leadership skills. Intermediate members will develop stronger relationships with each other and their older peers as they  engage in workshops, listen to dynamic speakers,  all while experiencing and exploring the UC Davis campus. 

We are excited to offer this new addition to our conference, and we can't wait to see all of our 4-H members there. Don't forget to register early to secure your spot, as space is limited. We look forward to seeing you in July!
