Urban Region Jr Leaders - NOW LISTED AS A SPIN CLUB

The Jr Leaders group is for any 4-Her's (Community Club, Youth Futures, School Program etc) that is between the ages of 13-18 years old. The purpose of this project is to teach youth the importance of understanding themselves as leaders and how to apply leadership skills in a team setting as well as assist them in identifying opportunities to practice their leadership skills. Beyond leadership and service, Jr Leaders also provides a social network for 4-H teens in the Urban Region.

Shooting Sports

Shooting Sports is a unique 4-H project in that there are social issues and concerns with the Shooting Sports project that other projects do not deal with. Because of this uniqueness, Missouri 4-H has developed some special guidelines and policies for the Shooting  Sports projects.
