If you have an interest in science, nutritious cuisine, healthy lifestyles, weather, the environment, professionalism, and more, you should consider the Georgia 4-H Ambassador Program. 4-H Ambassadors are selected for a specific Ambassador Track through an application process and participate in a dynamic and intensive training weekend, plan individual activities to increase and share their knowledge, and represent Georgia 4-H as ambassadors in the field.

 

The Georgia 4-H Ambassador Program has a rich history of success and impact. The inaugural program launched in 2005 and featured more than 30 youth working in their communities to make the best better! Today, selected 4-H Ambassadors are making a one-year commitment to the program, which includes attending the Ambassador Training Summit, engaging in self-directed learning, developing individualized plans for sharing their knowledge, and reporting ambassador activities on a quarterly basis.

Ambassador tracks offered in 2020 are: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics), Healthy Living, Pollinators, and Ready 4 Life. 4-H’ers may be selected to serve as ambassadors in one area per year and may be eligible to apply to return as an ambassador in the same issue or in a different issue in following years.
