National 4-H Shooting Sports Ambassador Program

The National 4-H Shooting Sports Ambassador program provides an excellent opportunity for 4-H’ers active in shooting sports projects to affording teens the opportunities to demonstrate their skills in leadership, citizenship and community service through ambassador activities that promote and encourage the 4-H Shooting Sports Program. Youth selected to serve as Ambassadors will receive training that will allow them to return to your county and advocate for the program at the county, regional, and state level. Some Ambassadors may be asked to support national events as well. Ambassadors provide public relations support at special events such as donor/sponsor functions and serve as spokespersons for the 4-H Shooting Sports Program, helping to make 4-H and the 4-H Shooting Sports Programs more visible. The Ambassador’s further develop their skills in leadership, public presentation, citizenship, community service, public relations, and team building.
