Dutchess County 4-H Teen Ambassadors Club

Any 4-H member who is 4-H age 13-18 is eligible,and encouraged, to join the Dutchess County Teen Ambassadors Club. Members work with volunteer leaders to complete the national 4-H Leadership Portfolio which provides the youth an opportunity to challenge themselves, set goals, and try new things. Through this project, they engage in resume writing, mock interviews, budget workshops, team building, and much more.

The Dutchess County 4-H Teen Ambassadors (DCTAs) engage in community service projects such as helping maintain the 4-H Buildings at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds (painting dorms and bunk beds, removing gutters, etc), public presentation escorts & set-up/clean-up crew, office interns, CCEDC event volunteers, etc.
