Council is made up of youth representatives, with a wide array of backgrounds, from 4-H clubs in Bernalillo County.
The 4-H Council is the governing body of the Bernalillo County 4-H program. The Council seeks to unify and provide communications between the Bernalillo County 4-H Clubs.
The Bernalillo County 4-H Program and the 4-H Council is open to all 4-H members and leaders regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, handicap, or national origin. 4-H Council consists of three voting delegates from each 4-H club in Bernalillo County.
The Council has twenty officers, which are elected each September. Officers represent Bernalillo County 4-H at official functions, coordinate events attended by youth and organize training for new 4-H members. The 4-H Council Leadership Team also organizes countywide fundraising activities and community service projects.
In addition officers log numerous hours educating others about the value 4-H programs bring to hundreds of youth across Bernalillo county and represent 4-H to the media and public.
4-H Council meets on the first Thursday every month at 6:30 PM at the 4-H Center. 4-H Council's goal is to have a representative from every 4-H Club in Bernalillo County at each meeting.
Additional leadership opportunities for youth include the Bernalillo County Horse Council, which is the governing body of the 4-H Horse Program in Bernalillo County. Elected youth and leaders plan many mounted and non mounted equine activities.
