4-H Teen Association

The Minidoka County 4-H Teen Association is open to all Minidoka County 4-H youth ages 13 to 19-years-old that are enrolled in a Minidoka County 4-H club taking at least one 4-H project.

Teens have the opportunity to learn leadership skills, perform service projects, promote 4-H and meet new friends.

The 4-H Teen Association is also a great way to get involved with district, state and national teen events, including the opportunity to participate in state-to-state exchanges.
