Leadership is a vital component of life skills. Through projects and activities in 4-H, youth and adults have many opportunities to develop leadership skills that include responsibility, self-confidence, self-esteem, communication skills, teamwork and decision-making. People utilize a variety of skills to be effective leaders. These skills are introduced, developed and expanded throughout a lifetime. This year there are 450 youth enrolled in the Dona Ana 4-H Leadership Projects. However, there are many opportunities for leadership development. Aside from leadership positions at the club, county and state levels, there are statewide activities, which aim to enhance leadership skills. These activities are Senior Leadership Retreat, Teen-Get-Away, 4-H Electric Energy Camp, State 4-H Conference.
