Do you need a Minnesota 4-H State Ambassador to help you as a 4-H youth spokesperson, emcee, speaker, program facilitator or host for your statewide program or event?
In Minnesota 4-H, there are many ways to lead. Among them are the state, local and agriculture ambassadors programs.
For over 50 years, the Minnesota 4-H State Ambassador program has offered leadership and civic engagement to 4-H members and their communities through service, promotion and education across the state. Ambassadors are role models for other 4-H'ers and they serve as positive representatives of the Minnesota 4-H program. They represent a diverse group of 4-H projects, programs and areas of the state.
How to become a Minnesota 4-H State Ambassador
You can apply to be a Minnesota 4-H State Ambassador if you have completed 10th, 11th or 12th grade before the application deadline in May. Applicants must be enrolled in Minnesota 4-H throughout their July-June term.
During their one-year term, state ambassadors facilitate and take part in activities to promote, represent, plan and implement high-quality programming for Minnesota youth. They gather in-person four times a year to do personal leadership development activities and to work as a team to create opportunities for middle and high school youth. At the BLU and YELLO conferences, the state ambassadors teach and facilitate learning sessions for youth participants.
