The California State Leadership Conference (SLC) is a tremendous undertaking organized by a team of dedicated leaders and members. The conference is organized by the State Ambassadors, Adult Advisors and the SLC Planning Committee, but could not be accomplished without help from the Educational Technology Advisory Committee and the SLC Support Group. 

Program Assistants

Program Assistants are 4-H Alumni who help the youth delegates to have the most amazing leadership experience possible. 

SLC Educational Workshops

University faculty and staff present many of the educational workshops. Workshops are also led by experienced volunteers who submit proposals that meet the requirements of delivering giving youth an interactive, educational experience. See our current list of workshops.

SLC Planning Committee

The entire conference is planned by the SLC Planning Committee - a team of high school-aged 4-H members and adult volunteers. Working in strong youth-adult partnership, they design the educational, recreational and logistical components of the conference. Applications for the 2018 Planning Committee were due Sept 29, 2017.

Chaperone Information

Adult volunteers are key to making this a safe and memorable activity. Having dedicated adult chaperones who commit themselves to the safety and well-being of the youth participants during the entire event (24 hours a day!) is a HUGE commitment. Thank you for considering serving in this capacity.

Please see the Chaperone selection process and requirements

Chaperone applicants: please do not register for the event until you have been notified that you will be a chaperone for this event.
