Teen Ambassador Leadership Kit (TALK)

Teens are invaluable to the 4-H program and community partners love to hear from the kids they support. Polish your public speaking skills and learn promotion and marketing techniques at this annual retreat, taking these skills back to your community. Work with 4-H staff members throughout the year to promote and market 4-H in your county.

The Teen Ambassador Leadership Kit (TALK) is an annual weekend retreat held each March at the historic Campus Grove in Albion, Idaho. It is designed for teens interested in promoting and marketing 4-H in their communities.

TALK organizers feel teens benefit directly from an intensive weekend retreat with communication as a focus.  TALK produces a network of educated and excited 4-H teens who are available to help with 4-H promotion and marketing.

TALK participants arrive on Friday evening for registration and team building activities. Saturday’s activities include workshops and projects, and on Sunday morning each workshop group shares their completed projects and what they learned.

Teens are designated "County 4-H Ambassadors" and certificates of completion, professional business cards, and polo shirts are presented on Sunday. TALK teen participants return home to share what they learned with their local county 4-H staff and help promote and market 4-H in their communities.
