4-H YELLO! conference
Youth Exploring Leadership and Learning Outloud! (YELLO!) is an exciting and fun, citizenship and leadership conference planned and facilitated by the Minnesota 4-H State Ambassadors. YELLO! brings together over 300 youth from across Minnesota and the nearby region to hear motivational speakers, take part in hands-on activities, engage in a service-learning project, and explore fun and educational opportunities in the region. Participants get to meet other youth across the region and plan for action in their home communities through a youth-teaching-youth model.
What happens at YELLO!?
During the week, the participants will engage in leadership activities and a service-learning activity to put into practice some of the skills they learn. Additional activities will allow youth to hear from nationally-recognized keynote speakers, engage in opportunities to meet other youth, learn some dances, and have a field trip experience in the Twin Cities!
Who can attend?
All youth enrolled in grades 6 through one year past high school. Non-4-H youth are encouraged to participate.
How much does it cost?
In 2017 the fee to take part in YELLO! was $225. The fee covers all meals, lodging, activities, transportation and smission for a field trip and service project, an event chaperone, and a t-shirt (adult sizes only). Fees for 2018 YELLO! have not yet been determined.
