The Texas 4-H Ambassador Program aims to project a clear and accurate image of the Texas 4-H Youth Development Program. The ambassador program has several specific goals:
*To tell and show key audiences what the 4-H Youth Development Program is and who it impacts, so that these audiences will understand the impact of 4-H on the lives of young people and will see how it addresses key youth issues in the community and state.
*To develop leadership and communication skills among the 4-H’ers selected to make ambassador presentations.
*To inform elected officials about the 4-H program and get them involved.
*To tell current and potential donors about 4-H and give them opportunities to support the program efforts that interest them.
*To change or improve the 4-H image among selected audiences.
