4-H Leader’s Association

The Trempealeau County 4-H Leaders’ Association holds monthly meetings as the purpose of the organization is to plan, implement, support and evaluate the Treampealeau County 4-H Program in accordance with the expectations of the Ag and Extension Committee of the Trempealeau County Board of Supervisors. Other goals and purposes of the board include:

  • Provide the funds necessary to carry out the 4-H Program when funding is not otherwise available, primarily through the sale of food at the 4-H Food Stand and the sale of Trempealeau County plat books
  • Establish policies and procedures as needed to most effectively implement and safeguard the 4-H Program
  • Provide an opportunity for concerned adults to be involved in the development of County 4-H youth through the 4-H Program
