Waseca 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 typically in-person and sometimes virtually.  We’ll meet usually monthly between October 2023 to May 2024, and do a good mix of planning meetings, outreach events, and fun, recreational activities.  (We work hard and play hard too!)
