Our Ellis County 4-H’er’s Get Involved!
One aspect of the 4-H Program is the opportunity 4-H youth have to develop organizational and leadership skills. This is practiced through officer positions within a specific club or county program and ambassador representation in state 4-H programs, such as the Texas 4-H Water, Texas 4-H Shooting Sports or Healthy Texas Youth. Really, the sky’s the limit on what a 4-H’er can do!
Below are listed opportunities to get involved and learn more about a program or a project of interest by applying to become part of an ambassador program. Click on the appropriate links to learn (and grow) more!

Healthy Texas Youth Ambassadors | Application deadline has ended.
This program is designed for high school age youth who have a passion for health and wellness. Youth will be trained at the local & regional level to become youth
health experts who can motivate others to make changes in their lifestyle and improve overall health. More importantly, ambassadors will assist local county extension agents with program efforts, project activities, and much more!
Texas 4-H Water Ambassadors Program | Application deadline has ended.
The Texas 4-H Water Ambassadors Program was formed in 2017 in an effort to educate youth about water resources in Texas. Every spring, up to 30 high school youth are selected to participate in a summer 4-H2O Leadership Academy (tour). Over eight days, students journey more than 2,200 miles and learn how water is collected, conveyed, treated, conserved, and managed to meet the need of our economy and citizenry.
To reinforce knowledge gained during the academy, water ambassadors pass on that information to others as they engage in various education and service activities throughout the year. This program also provides a platform for youth to connect with water industry professionals and educators who represent a wide range of water disciplines.
