Douglas County 4-H Leadership

4-H Youth Council

Douglas County 4-H Youth Council

A 4-H Youth Council member exceeds beyond the general 4-H member expectations. These members devote extra time throughout the year to lead the 4-H program within their own 4-H clubs, their own communities within Douglas County, and as a group during county-wide events. The Douglas County 4-H County Youth Council works together to organize and lead several activities and events for the Douglas County 4-H Program. Some of these activities include Achievement Night, Leadership Day and June Livestock Show.

Interested in joining?

  • Douglas County Youth Council Meetings are open to all Douglas County 4-H members.  Meetings are held on the first Monday of every month at 5:30 pm for officers and 6:30 pm for general members/club representatives. All are invited and encouraged to attend!  Contact the office (720) 733-6940 for the next meeting date and location!

4-H Ambassadors

Douglas County Ambassador Program

Ambassadors are seen as the face of Douglas County 4-H! We utilize our ambassadors as leaders within our own 4-H community but also as a connection between 4-H and the general public. Ambassadors provide a presence at 4-H programs and outreach events throughout the year. This program helps 4-Hers develop their public speaking abilities and gain experience in applications, resumes, and job interviewing.
