Healthy Living Ambassador

New 4-H Youth Healthy Living Ambassadors have been trained at our February Maryland Healthy Living Summits. These 4-H HL Ambassadors now have resources to provide healthy living activities for their clubs and counties to promote healthier lifestyles across our state. Through our Healthy Living Ambassador Resource page and our Up For the Challenge and Health Rocks! curriculums, these ambassadors are helping to create a healthier world by encouraging other youth and adults to eat healthier, live active lifestyles, and stay away from drugs and alcohol. Resources for quick, easy, hands-on activities are available to all our HL Ambassadors for each of their club meetings.  Our goal is to eventually have a Healthy Living Ambassador in each 4-H club throughout the state.

Get Involved!  If you or you know someone who is interested in becoming a 4-H Youth Healthy Living Ambassador, please contact Sandy Corridon at corridon@umd.edu

                           

4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors! Your job is to provide healthy living activities for your counties and 4-H clubs and promote healthier lifestyles. Lots of activities that may be used are listed on this page. If you find additional resources, let us know so we can share with the other 4-H Health Ambassadors!

Remember, we are keeping track of your progress. Please fill out this form when you have done an activity at your club or in your county.

Healthy Living Ambassadors that complete 5 or more activities throughout the year will receive a Healthy Living Ambassador polo shirt. Other prizes may be awarded periodically as reports come in!!
