4-H County Program Management

What is the 4-H Program Board and Youth Volunteer Advisory Committee (YVAC)?

Ventura County 4-H now has non-volunteer management organization (non-VMO) structure and instead uses a triumvirate of staff and finance volunteers to provide overall administrative oversight.

The program planning, budget, and review is done through the Program Board, made up of up to 10 adult volunteers and youth members.  The Youth Volunteer Advisory Committee (YVAC) is made up of up to nine (9) senior-level youth members.

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings for 2021-2022 are held at: 

UC Cooperative Extension
California Room
669 County Square Dr.

Program Board meetings are held the last Thursday of each month (allowing November/December to December 9th only).
