4-H Teen Council
Teen Council provides opportunities for teens to interact with other teens from all over Delaware County. Activities include cultural, educational, social and community service events. Teen Council is open to all 4-H members between the ages of 13 to 19. 4-H members can join as soon as they turn 13. An organizational meeting takes place in September. This meeting is where all the activities for the year are planned and the teens are responsible for making those decisions. Some of the activities they have planned in the past include roller skating; bowling; planting trees; walking dogs and socializing cats at the Humane Society; plays at Orpheus Theatre in Oneonta, NY; skiing; laser tag; Zoom Flume in Durham, NY; to mention a few. Teens are also asked to help in the Youth Building at the Delaware County Fair. Also there are many state opportunities for 4-H teens.
4-H Teen Council Quilt Meetings
4-H teens and volunteers meet once a month to make the annual 4-H Teen Council quilt which is sold in the Youth Building at the Delaware County Fair in August. Proceeds from the quilt help to reduce the cost of 4-H Teen Council activities for members. Teens socialize while learning sewing skills.
All are welcome, you do not need to be a Teen Council member to participate.
If interested, please contact Emily Roach at [email protected] to be added to the quilt e-mail list serve to receive up-to-date information and class cancellations due to weather, etc.
Dates of scheduled upcoming quilt meetings are listed below.
