The California State Leadership Conference (SLC) is a tremendous undertaking organized by a team of dedicated leaders and members. The conference is organized by the State Ambassadors, Adult Advisors and the SLC Planning Committee, but could not be accomplished without help from the Technology Leadership Team and the SLC Support Group.

SLC Support Group
Applications are coming soon! Teen leaders participate in the implementation of State Leadership Conference through the SLC Support Group. Applicants must be eligible to attend State Leadership Conference.
The entire conference is planned by the SLC Planning Committee - a team of high school-aged 4-H members and adult volunteers. Working in strong youth-adult partnership, they design the educational, recreational and logistical components of the conference.
See what you have to look forward to!
Adult volunteers are key to making this a safe and memorable activity. Having dedicated adult chaperones who commit themselves to the safety and well-being of the youth participants during the entire event (24 hours a day!) is a HUGE commitment. Thank you for considering serving in this capacity.
