What are County Ambassadors?
Minnesota local 4-H ambassadors are youth in grades 7 through one year past high school who want to make a difference in 4-H and in their communities. Local 4-H ambassadors use their skills in leadership, civic engagement, communication and teamwork to promote 4-H, plan events, guide younger youth and serve their communities. Specific roles of local 4-H ambassadors may vary from county/tribal nation.
These positions are not definitive and their responsibilities are subject to change as the Ambassador Team sees fit. Contact the Extension Office for a paper version of this form.
