The 4-H Ontario Ambassador program provides youth with advanced level training in leadership, citizenship, communications and public relations. Ambassadors put their energy and 4-H experiences to work recruiting new members and sharing the 4-H story. Throughout 2015, each of 4-H Ontario’s six Ambassadors will submit blog entries about their experiences in the program. The 4-H Ontario Ambassador program is proudly sponsored by GROWMARK, Inc. and UPI Energy LP. For more info on the Ambassador program click here.

Hi again it’s Cailen Bromley, one of the 2015 ambassadors and I am so happy to be writing again! So much has happened in the past couple months it’s crazy. I had the pleasure of attending Ignite and had the experience of a lifetime, learning to work with a group to create change. This was an awesome camp and I learned so much in the days I was there! I got to meet new people and connect with friend I had already met from previous camps. I have also had the pleasure of getting to be part of several 100th Anniversary celebrations where it has been great to see everybody getting involved and excited and there are still more great things to come. I was able to speak at some local fairs about the 100th Anniversary and the great things that have happened in the past that we celebrate. I also had a great time traveling down to Guelph to take part in the Growmark Sponsor Tour, where we got to see the faculties and how the operations work so successfully. We also got to see the UPI Energy distribution system. I am so happy to have them as a sponsor of our Ambassador program and allowing us to have all these great opportunities. There are lots of things I am looking forward to as the summer comes to an end, such as the IPM in Finch in September where we will have the 4-H Gala, which is going to be grand! The Farm Show and the Royal will also be later in the year which I’m excited to attend.
I am so happy there is so much going on in 4-H and that there’s opportunities to meet so many people in the 4-H community and see all of the great things we have accomplished.
