Two Oregon 4-H Youth Development members, Deja Fitzwater of Clackamas County and Quinn Schroeder of Washington County, displayed their poise, speaking skills, and passion for helping others while on a panel with President Ed Ray at the State of the University Address.
State Ambassadors are representatives of the 4-H Program. They promote 4-H to potential members, volunteers, donors and legislators. They demonstrate the impact 4-H has on the lives of young people and their communities.
State Ambassadors are a resource to county and state staff and they help plan and conduct state events as well as provide input on state programs.
As a state ambassador, members build leadership and communication skills, develop self-confidence and model effective youth-adult partnerships.
