About the programc:\users\pokorney\appdata\local\temp\sarah 048 (2).jpg


The Minnesota 4-H Shooting Sports & Wildlife Ambassador Program is a leadership opportunity for youth leaders, grades 9-13th, to promote and enhance the Minnesota 4-H State SS&W Program. Ambassadors positively represent the SS&W Program at state, regional, and local levels.

The mission of the program is to:

“Collectively, as the Minnesota 4-H SS&W Ambassadors, we are the voice of the youth by leading, encouraging and setting a good example.  We strive to build confidence and promote new experiences in the youth through 4-H” (2012 SS&W Ambassador group).


Expectations


Youth will attend a two-day training in which they will learn aspects of the Minnesota 4-H Shooting Sports and Wildlife Program, develop personal vision statements, and learn skills in public presentation, etiquette, and partnerships development.

It is also expected that Ambassadors will be actively engaged in the program and attend state and local events throughout the year. Events may include the National Wild Turkey Federation State Convention, children’s activity at State Shoot, and Governor’s Deer Hunter Opener.
