To empower Arizona 4-H teen-leaders as generational leaders.
The Arizona State 4-H Youth Ambassador Program (State 4-H Ambassadors) is the premier youth leadership development opportunity in Arizona 4-H. The State 4-H Ambassador program provides 4-H teen leaders with the opportunity to advocate for 4-H youth, represent Arizona 4-H, and develop as generational leaders. The team consists of seven highly qualified 4-H State 4-H Ambassadors selected annually from a pool of statewide applicants. The State 4-H Ambassadors will work closely together as a collaborative team to help lead 4-H statewide leadership initiatives. Additionally, each will provide mentorship and leadership specific to their areas of expertise. State 4-H Ambassadors have the unique opportunity to make a significant difference and help steer the course of 4-H programming throughout our state.
