What is an Ambassador?
4-H Ambassadors are responsible for representing and promoting 4-H and assisting with county-wide or statewide 4-H activities. A 4-H Ambassador is a motivated individual who seeks to become a leader, mentor, and teacher, inspiring positive change in their community.
Why should I become a 4-H Ambassador?
