The Discover the Leader in You! 4-H Leadership Conference provided an opportunity for middle school age youth to learn about and develop leadership knowledge and skills through large and small group interactive workshops, hands-on activities and guest speakers.   In addition, conference participants met 4-H’ers from across New Jersey; made new friends and gained valuable life skills including understanding self, communicating, getting along with others, decision making, and working with groups.
