Kentucky 4-H Shooting Sports Teen Ambassador Board 

Description

Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in our four guiding concepts: mastery, belonging, independence, and generosity. The Teen Ambassador Board fosters mastery by empowering members to research, develop, present and teach concepts related to shooting sports and natural resources, belonging by building relationships with other 4-H’ers from across the state with similar interests, independence by encouraging the development of youth lead committees, and generosity through the planning of, and participation in, regular service projects.

  • Be between the 4-H age (age as of Jan. 1st of current year) of 14 to 17 at the time of application.

Hello, my name is Andrew Myers. I am from Oldham County and I am the National Teen Ambassador for District 3. I have been in 4-H Shooting Sports program for 8 years now.
