State Teen Action Representative Retreat (STAR)

  • Friday, May 3, 2024, 5:30 PM - Sunday, May 5@ 1:30 PM

STAR (State Teen Action Retreat) is a premiere youth voice opportunity, open to youth ages 13-19, modeled after the National 4-H Conference. 

We invite 4-H teen leaders to apply to serve as a planning team member, they select an adult partner and serve to plan the STAR event. STAR is a fun-filled weekend that helps to invigorate 4-H programming across NYS and showcases positive youth development, experiential learning, agriculture, sustainable food systems, STEM, and civic engagement workshops. Roundtables are modeled after the 4-H pillars and help youth to do a deep dive in the topics outside of the hands-on workshops. We also have a community service, keynote speaker, dinner/dance, and ice cream social.

STAR 2024 registration will open on Monday, March 11, 2024, and will close out on Friday, April 12, 2024.

The fee to attend STAR is $125. After registration closes, we will assess a cancellation fee of $62.50 if cancellations come in after April 26, 2024, but substitutions are welcome.
