Senior Council Resources


Jr. Council is for Boone County youth ages 13-18. These youth help promote 4-H club work in Boone County and represent Boone County on the state and national level. Jr. Council gives youth an opportunity to have fun while making new friends, building leadership, and communication skills through participating, planning, and putting on various activities for the county and themselves. Just like other clubs, Jr. Council has officers, committees, community service activities and fun activities (just for teens)! Jr. Council is run by its members, and is advised by 4-H parents and an University Extension staff member.

All Boone County youth ages 13-18 may join. Youth may join Jr. Council anytime of the year. Non 4-H members can participate in Jr. Council simply by paying the Missouri 4-H dues. They do not need to become a member of a Boone County 4-H Club. Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the Boone County Extension Office.
