The Outdoor Leadership program was developed by Anna DeMers, 4-H Youth Development Educactor, in response to the need for a youth leadership program in Washburn County. This program teaches youth hands-on leadership skills in an engaging environment. The leadership skills are transferred beyond the outdoors into schools, communities, and the workplace.
