4-H News Notes
All Star and County Teen Ambassadors applications now open
Dear 4-H Community,
The County 4-H All Star Program is for the teen member who has earned all their star ranks to the gold level. All Stars act as visible 4-H members - role models for their fellow 4-H members, their community, their county, and their world.
Monterey County 4-H has “redefined” the All Star program and renamed the TLAW level through a series of committee review meetings. Both adult volunteers and youth looked for ways to update the applications, the interview process, the leadership work, the goals and even add newer elements of the California 4-H initiatives.
The All Stars will continue to plan their own program within the established county guidelines. Their "Plan of Action" still includes planning and leading a county event, field trips, visiting clubs, participating in Council meetings, presenting the 4-H program and to other agencies.
It now encourages each All Star to work as part of a team, or independently, to bring the core 4-H program initiatives to the local membership.
The new County Teen Ambassadors (formally known as Teen Leader Award Winner) will offer a countywide leadership opportunity that has no star rank requirements to apply and join. This leadership program will foster and guide the members into completing a record book that allows the member to become an All Star or, to simply earn a star rank.
These youth will also have the opportunity to focus on mentoring local members using up-to-date 4-H curriculum, campaigns and information.
Both positions require an application process each year and an interview by a selection committee. To find the applications, job descriptions, body of work or ca
