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 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 through a Personal Development Report (PDR) or another form 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 there will be additional work that will feature a focus on Service Learning.
The County All Star Ambassador position still requires an application process each year and an interview by a selection committee. To find the application, job descriptions or, the proposed calendar, please visit the county 4-H website http://cemonterey.ucanr.edu/4-H_Program/Star_Ranking/ Applications are being accepted now through May 22, 2019.
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.
