It is time to apply for the Sacramento 4-H County Ambassador Team!

What is a County Ambassador?

A County Ambassador is a representative and champion of the 4-H program in the county.  County Ambassadors act as visible 4-H members - role models for their fellow 4-H members, their county, their state and their world.  Our Sacramento 4-H County Ambassadors will be a youth leadership team that works closely with County Ambassador Coaches to bring opportunities to other 4-H members in our county and gain additional leadership and life skills.

County Ambassador Qualifications

  • Applicant must have completed at least one year of membership in 4-H prior to the year of application.  Membership doesn't not have to be the most recent consecutive year.
