They plan 4-H activities & events that take place at the county level. 4-H Council serves as a "Learning Laboratory" for youth to learn a variety of leadership skills.

They plan & coordinate county wide activities such as 4-H Day, Fashion Revue, Achievement Banquet, project workshops, Day Camps and are empowered to raise and disburse funds for such activities.
