You can be part of something good . . .
by joining the Bergen/Passaic Counties 4-H Teen Council.

Who can be a TC member? How do I get involved?

Teen Council meets once a month. Our next meeting date and location are shown on our homepage in the orange box in the sidebar to the right. Please join us at a meeting if you can! We will do everything possible to arrange a ride to the meeting for you if you need one.

You are eligible for membership in Teen Council if you are a teen in 8th-13th grade (through first year of college), and are at least 13 years old.

You are welcome to visit our meetings before you decide to join. You'll have the chance to get to know our members and see how meetings are managed.

Teen Council members are expected to come to monthly meetings and to participate in community service activities and family night events (held about 4 times a year). Participation isn't obligatory in a strict sense, but the more members participating, the stronger Teen Council becomes through shared collaboration and the team spirit of providing service to our community.

Teen Council members who wish to run for office need to meet attendance requirements in order to be eligible to run.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Bergen or Passaic County 4-H offices (contact info in the yellow box to the right).

You're also welcome to send an email. A live person will get back to you who will be delighted to answer questions and chat about Teen Council.
