All Star & County Teen Ambassador
County All Star Ambassador
May 1, 2018
Dear 4-H Community,
Through an extensive two year review the 4-H All Star program, the California 4-H office found inconsistencies from county to county on how this 4-H Leadership Program was being implemented for enrolled teens. While the Monterey County 4-H program had already completed a volunteer directed “overhaul” in 2013-2014, we will begin the process of accepting the required updates this and next year in small steps.
Many of the elements of this youth role will remain the same. However, the updates you will notice this year include the name update of County All Star Ambassador. Members will be able to apply using their verified 4-H star ranks or by showing documented work that is the equivalent to earning a gold star. The Body of Work that many of you enjoyed watching the All Stars present will become an Action Plan and will feature a focus on Service Learning.
The non-record book required County Teen Ambassador position will be removed for this year as the above position is the equivalent. However, possible new teen leadership roles are being for middle school aged members are being discussed.
The County All Star Ambassador position still requires an application process each year and an interview by a selection committee. To find the applications, job descriptions or, the calendar, please visit the county 4-H website http://cemonterey.ucanr.edu/4-H_Program/Star_Ranking/ Applications are being accepted now through June 22, 2018
Of course, this team will need adult leadership to help the youth who apply reach their goals. Applicants are being sought for an All Star Co-Advisor(s). Please review the Advisor applications and consider ways that you can give your time even if it is for a one-time special event.
Please review the applications and paperwork!

Reminder - The County Youth Council applications are ready the 2018-2019 year. This role is for the member ages 12-19 who is a “doer” who enjoys events, planning, decision making as a group and wants to become a youth “voice” for the Leaders’ Council. This position can be seen at http://cemonterey.ucanr.edu/4-H_Program/Leaders_Council/.
