Kansas 4-H Ambassadors

Ambassador roles vary across Kansas. But, in general, 4-H Ambassadors are 4-H members who promote the local 4-H program to local residents. Audiences can include 4-H’ers, school groups, civic organizations, government officials, senior citizens, business people - any individual or group interested in learning more about 4-H!

The length of a term as an Ambassador is two years. The number of Ambassadors in a local unit is typically 3-8. Most units have a formal application and interview process to select Ambassadors. Some counties/districts have age or year-in-4-H restrictions. All 4-H Ambassador programs require a sincere desire to promote 4-H, willingness to interact with the general public, interest in improving communication skills, willingness to speak in front of groups and a commitment of your time and energy.
