Teen Leadership & Ambassador Training
Teen Leader & Ambassador FALL training event will be postponed in its traditional face to face form to Fall October 22-24, 2021 in Billings MT.
In its place will be similar opportunities to practice leadership skills, network with peers and have some fun together. All of this will be called the Montana 4-H Leadership Academy and will begin virtually via Zoom Saturday October 17, 2020 3-5 PM.
Montana 4-H Leadership Academy
Members 12+, 4-H Age | County Ambassadors 14+, 4-H Age
Statewide opportunity to build a network of 4-H teen leaders across Montana and connect them directly with State Ambassador Officer Team and statewide resources in order to develop capacity for individual leadership skills and practice these leadership skills at the local level.
The need to overcome the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed us to think outside the box and offer an opportunity for Montana 4-H'ers interested in further developing their leadership skills along side their peers from across Montana.
The leadership academy will take the energy and engagement found at Teen Leader & Ambassador Fall Training events and stretch it out over 10 months! This also allows the opportunity for more scheduled interaction with the ambassador officer team, meaningful responsibility for county ambassadors and accountability for leadership at the local level where it is needed.
Join the Montana 4-H Ambassador Officer Team for the LEADERSHIP LAUNCH!
Saturday October 17 from 3-5 PM
Counties are encouraged to schedule a local face to face event and engage in the statewide virtual event together.
This will begin building your core group of ambassadors, teen leaders and members interested in developing leadership skills and serving their communities.
What will be included?
Leadership Academy Monthly Workshops
There will be future registration for these monthly virtual workshops and members will be expected to attend as many as possible. County Leadership groups are expected to meet face to face whenever possible and engage in the virtual state wide workshop together. This time can be viewed as a leadership club meeting. County ambassadors will be expected, with training, to plan and facilitate these local workshop meetings. The following agenda is currently being planned and the dates are subject to change.
Still thinking about the right topic for this month.
Service & Recognition
What can I do to serve my community? How can I inspire others to serve the community? How can people be recognized?
What is 4-H? Where can we tell people about it? Why is this important for my community?
What have I have accomplished or not? What have we accomplished or not? What is next and why?
