The North Dakota 4-H Program Oversight and Policy Board
The North Dakota 4-H Program Oversight and Policy Board is an advisory board to the NDSU Extension Service 4-H Youth Development Program. It is composed of a representative and diverse group of 4-H youth, volunteers, and staff to discuss policy issues related to the North Dakota 4-H Youth Development Program.
The board examines policy issues to determine if new or revised policies are needed, draft recommendations for policies, and identifies appropriate review for policy changes. The board makes recommendations to the Center for 4-H Youth Development Chair who will act upon or take the recommendations to the appropriate decision-making body (Extension Leadership Team, Vice President, etc.)
The board also provides leadership and guidance regarding implementation of new or revised policies. This includes:
- developing a plan and timeline for implementation and follow up,
- developing supporting documents, and
- integrating policies into the communication pieces for staff, youth and adult volunteers who work with the North Dakota
