4-H clover Sign-up to be a Hennepin County 4-H County Ambassador

Calling all youth in grades 6th and up!  

Are you eager to make change in your community?  Do you love paying it forward?  Would you like to be a role model for younger kids? We think you’d be a great addition to the Hennepin County 4-H Ambassador team!

Who is this group for? 

Hennepin County youth, ages 12-19
At least 6th grade for the 2022-23 school year

No prior 4-H experience required

What is it? 

Hennepin County 4-H Ambassadors is a fun, engaging group of teen leaders who represent and advocate for positive youth learning experiences and opportunities through the 4-H youth development program. You are essentially our program’s steering committee! 

Where and when do we meet? 

We meet both in-person and virtually across Hennepin County.  We’ll meet 1-2 times per month between October 2022 to August 2023, and do a good mix of planning meetings, outreach events, and fun, recreational activities.  (We work hard and play hard too!)

By serving as a Hennepin County 4-H Ambassador, you will:

  • Attend 1-2 meetings per month (virtual for now)
  • Make new friends
  • Set individual and group goals
  • Decide on our focus areas of our group and County program, such as public speaking, racial justice, community service, etc.
  • Lead activities at various 4-H events for younger youth 
  • Gain leadership skills -- This is a great opportunity to take part in and list on job or college applications! 

Why should I join?

Where do we even start?! By being a part of this group, you will… 

  • Be a part of something bigger. Our program reaches over 500 youth each year! You have an opportunity to help us decide not only what programs we do, but also serve as a peer mentor and role model to younger youth!
  • Harness your strengths. We’ll take your leadership skills to the next level! Participating in this group is a great addition to your resume, job or college applications, and scholarship opportunities! 
  • Meet new people and make friends!/

When should I sign up?

Please sign up as soon as possible -- by Oct. 1 if you can!  We’ll start meeting in October 2022, but you can join us anytime throughout the year!
