Ambassador Tracks
Training for three 4-H Ambassadors will be held at State 4-H Council. The goal of the
4-H Ambassador Program is to prepare 4‑H’ers to become knowledgeable in a specific content area so that they can return to their counties and share what they’ve learned with others. The 4-H Ambassador Program requires a one-year commitment that begins at State 4-H Council. After returning home, 4-H Ambassadors are expected to participate in and report on learning and sharing activities, which they plan and deliver in their communities in the coming year.This year's ambassador tracks include:

  • STEM Ambassadors: Youth interested in science tracks will choose 1 of 3 focus areas:  STEM-Engineering Design Process; STEM-Environmental Science; or STEM-Physcial, Biological, & Earth Science.  Grant funds will support the STEM tracks.
  • Financial Capability: 4-H’ers will focus on developing attitudes, knowledge, skills, and self-efficacy needed to make and exercise money management decisions that best fit the circumstances of one's life.  Grant funds will support this track.
  • Military: The Military Ambassador track empowers young people to advocate and share information with the civilian community about military families.  It also provides opportunities for youth to learn how they can support military families in their communities through 4-H programming

Interested youth must be full-time State 4-H Council delegates and must apply to be a 4-H Ambassador. Applications are available on the Georgia 4-H Ambassador Program website.

Citizenship Ceremony and Chorus

All rising high school seniors and 4-H’ers who will turn 18 before 2017 State 4-H Council should plan to participate. Clovers and Company delegates are required to participate in the chorus.
