Teens should be at least 16 years old and have participated in Career Explorations in the past. Focus Assistant teen leaders will help plan, implement, and evaluate the success of the 4-H Career Explorations Conference. Focus Assistants will be leading both Focus and University U groups this year. More information, including a job description, is available on our Career Explorations website.
