4-H YELLO Conference


Youth Exploring Leadership and Learning Outloud! (YELLO!) is an exciting and fun, citizenship and leadership conference planned and facilitated by the Minnesota 4-H State Ambassadors. YELLO! brings together over 300 youth from across Minnesota and the nearby region to hear motivational speakers, take part in hands-on activities, engage in a service-learning project, and explore fun and educational opportunities in the region. Participants get to meet other youth across the region and plan for action in their home communities through a youth-teaching-youth model.

During the week, the participants will engage in leadership activities and a service-learning activity to put into practice some of the skills they learn. Additional activities will allow youth to hear from nationally-recognized keynote speakers, engage in opportunities to meet other youth, learn some dances, and have a field trip experience in the Twin Cities!
