Jefferson County Seeks Teens for Healthy Teen Ambassadors Program

Cornell Cooperative Extension Association of Jefferson County’s 4-H Youth Development Program is recruiting 4-H Healthy Teen Ambassadors.   

This is open to all youth ages 14-17 in Jefferson County. There are no costs to participate, but space is limited. The deadline to register is Feb. 29.

The 4-H Healthy Teen Ambassadors will attend a training March 18 to 20 at the Amboy Center in Oswego County as part of a regional training with teens from across the state.  

Teens will be trained in the 4-H Choose Health:  Food, Fun and Fitness curriculum developed by Cornell University, Kids in the Kitchen curriculum developed by University of Missouri and the Up for the Challenge curriculum developed by the Department of Defense.   

Each curriculum is different, but they all offer research-based education on the benefits of nutrition and physical activity. Teens will be trained to deliver the healthy living curricula to youth in elementary after school programs, day camps, county fairs and other events.  

For additional information, on 4-H or the 4-H Healthy Living Teen Ambassador opportunity contact Cathy Chrisman at 788-8450 or go to
