Who should register:
All Youth and Adults who plan to attend the Virtual Kansas Youth Leadership Forum! Youth participants must be 14-18 years old before January 1, 2021. Youth do not have to be 4-H members to attend. The conference is brief, so delegates should plan to attend the program times on both Saturday and Sunday.
Just like an in-person event, we do need chaperones for adult supervision and safety.  All youth delegates must have an adult chaperone that will be responsible during the Forum. Counties and Districts are encouraged to work together to secure chaperones.  A designated adult chaperone will assist with two deep adult coverage for workshops and small group time and we will need adult help for elections too. Chaperones must be at least 21 years of age, screened and approved volunteers in their local Extension Unit or Extension Staff and register for the conference. 
Registration and Fees:
The registration fee (register by November 10) is $30.  It will include: a conference t-shirt (mailed after the event), insurance, and program fees. Delegates should pay fees to their local Extension Office that will in turn write one check payable to the Kansas 4-H Foundation.  Registration fees are due for all who register. Please refer to your local Extension Office for payment and registration deadlines.
Registration is on-line. Upon completing registration online, participants will immediately know their workshops!  No waiting to see if they  got their first choice!  All online registrations are contingent upon Extension Agent’s approval and fee being turned in on time. If participant cancels on or before November 10, they will be subject to a $25 cancellation fee. If cancellation after November 10, participant will not receive registration fee back and will be expected to pay the entire $30 fee.
