Members of 4-H clubs and others statewide have a high-tech way to learn about leadership.
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service's Leadership Live! virtual leadership experience takes place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday, according to an extension news release.
The free, live Web-streamed experience will teach participants to develop and enhance their abilities to motivate and lead others, said Courtney Dodd, an extension service 4-H specialist in College Station.
It can be accessed from any web-accessible device, including but not limited to desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Participants can access the session at texas4-h.tamu.edu/leadershiplive and can register through the same link.
Those who use Twitter can tweet questions and comments to @texas4h using the hashtag #leadershiplive4h.
Leadership Live! is useful to anyone looking to develop leadership skills, Chris Boleman, College Station's 4-H and youth program director said in the release. In addition to learning how leadership skills can carry a person from county to regional and statewide 4-H levels, all participants will learn how such skills can benefit them in academic, social and career-oriented endeavors.
"Anybody can participate and can learn from the live cast," Boleman said. "We encourage 4-H members across Texas to tell all their family and friends about this unique opportunity."
