The Ohio 4-H Foundation is searching for 4-H Youth Representatives to serve on it’s board. The Ohio 4-H Foundation is guided by a volunteer Board, comprised of business and industry leaders, Extension personnel, and 4-H youth representatives from around the state.

Here are specific responsibilities of board members:

•Assist with the Celebration of Youth fundraiser preparations.

•Voice youth perspectives in every avenue to all board members and youth throughout the state.

The term is from January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2023. HOW TO APPLY: Complete the application found at go.osu.edu/join4hfoundation.
