Join the new ambassador Officer team for a fun-filled, action-packed weekend of leadership training. Anyone interested in furthering their leadership skills and ability to impact the club and community is welcome! This is a great time to connect with those friends you may have met at 4-H Congress or meet new people from around Montana. Not sure if this event is for you? Reach out to one of the state officers and have a conversation. They are more than happy to fill you in on what you would be missing if you skip this great event!

Fall Leadership Training is the annual leadership development retreat for Montana 4-H Ambassadors and Teen Leaders. The event is planned, implemented, and evaluated by the State Ambassador Officer Team. Youth will leave the weekend prepared and excited to take the knowledge and skills they have gained and apply them in their counties. It is also a great place to have youth leaders exchange ideas and create a statewide network of resources. Fall Training takes place each year over MEA weekend, the third Thursday/Friday in October.
