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?
4-H state & local ambassadors
Most Minnesota counties and tribal nations have a 4‑H ambassador program. Ambassadors are select 4‑H youth who lead and take part in activities that help them become good citizens and leaders. Contact your local 4‑H office to learn more about these programs in your area.
For over 50 years, the Minnesota 4-H State Ambassador team has offered leadership and civic engagement to 4-H and their communities through service, promotion and education across the state. They 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.
What do Minnesota 4-H State Ambassadors do?
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.
