Kansas Youth Leadership Forum Workshops Presenters Needed

Submitted by Beth Hinshaw

The theme for the forum this year is “Let’s Taco ‘Bout Leadership.” This event, designed for youth ages 14-18, and 4-H volunteers, will include speakers, workshops, and the election of the 2021 Kansas 4-H Youth Leadership Council.

We are recruiting proposals for workshops. The Youth Council hopes you will be interested in sharing your expertise and talents through this opportunity. Workshops will be offered Saturday, November 21, from 11 a.m. - Noon and Sunday, November 22, from 2:30 - 3:30 p.m.

Topics should center on leadership. Some ideas might include, but are not limited to citizenship, character, communication, conflict management, ethics, motivation, initiatives, decision making, leading by example, time management, using your resources, leadership after high school, career preparation, getting involved, international citizenship, diversity, professionalism and business etiquette. We are particularly looking for new and exciting virtual lessons to give KYLF a fresh workshop selection.

Please consider offering the topic during both class times. Presentations that involve the audience and have some type of handout have been the most effective in past years. Handouts will be posted online for participants.

If you know of others who would be good presenters or facilitators, please share this information with them as well. The Youth Council will be reviewing proposals in early September. Selected presenters will be notified in mid September. Additional information will be sent to presenters prior to the Forum.

As you can see, the opportunities are numerous. Click here to see the letter and what is needed for the online proposal. We are hoping to hear back from you by Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Proposals should be submitted online.

Should you have questions, please contact Beth Hinshaw, bhinshaw@ksu.edu, or call 620-496-8206.
