County Program Management

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

San Joaquin County 4-H has joined a number of other counties in California 4-H now piloting a non-volunteer management organization structure.

The program planning, budget, and review is done through the Program Development Committee (PDC).  The committee is 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 to provide oversight and review of the PDC's budget and program planning. 

A triumvirate of 4-H staff and a volunteer finance manager provide any policy or administrative guidance when needed.
