Coming from all parts of the state, elementary and middle school students had the opportunity to attend the “Step Up and Lead” conference series. A joint effort of Georgia 4-H and the Georgia Association of Elementary and Middle School Principals,  “Step Up and Lead” conferences focus on cultivating leadership skills in elementary and middle school students while providing adult leaders with a framework for engaging these students when they return to school. 

The conference was held in Tifton at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center on Thursday, March 7th. Youth from all parts of the state were able to participate in interactive activities designed by youth development professionals. 

“Step Up and Lead” Conferences feature motivational speakers and exciting, interactive workshops.  Workshops are designed to engage and empower youth in future leadership initiatives. These three sessions focused on Team Building and Cooperation, Planning and Organizing, and Building Communication Skills.
