Leadership in the Fast Lane!

For over 100 years, Georgia 4-H has provided young people with leadership training and opportunities to apply what they learn.  Step Up and Lead (SUAL) allows 4-H to share its leadership development expertise with a broader audience of emerging youth leaders.  SUAL is a half-day conference that focuses on cultivating leadership skills in Georgia’s younger students while providing adult leaders with a framework for engaging these students when they return to school.  SUAL Conferences are held in both the fall and spring at locations around the state.

Step Up and Lead is designed for older elementary and middle school students (grades 4-8) who have demonstrated interest in or aptitude for leadership, whether in Student Council, Beta Club,  4-H Officers, Safety Patrol, or otherwise.  The conferences feature three exciting and interactive workshops, designed and facilitated by 4-H youth development professionals, to engage and empower youth in future leadership initiatives. Participants will learn about such topics as building communication and presentation skills, understanding leadership and personality styles, and team building and group process skills.
