Who can apply:
The Ohio 4-H Teen Advisory Council seeks active 4-H members between the ages of 15 and 18 to represent their fellow 4-H members for a renewable one-year term. Members are selected by a youth-led committee that reviews applications and reference letters, interviews the applicants, and confirms each applicant’s commitment to 4-H the Council.
What is the Teen Advisory Council:
The Ohio 4-H Teen Advisory Council (TAC) is the highest youth decision-making and advisement body in the state’s 4-H program. Select teens from across the state work together to improve Ohio 4-H programming, administration, and relevance to youth in today’s society through cooperation with State 4-H leaders, active support of new and innovative 4-H programming, and advocacy for 4-H and youth issues. The TAC’s officers establish and moderate the agenda for the Council membership with the support of the TAC advisor and associate advisors. There are mandatory trainings and meetings at the beginning of and throughout the year, but TAC members can influence the scheduling of most TAC meetings, conference calls, and activities.
