About the Youth Ambassador Positions
Would you like to spread the word about dairy goats? If so, consider applying to be the Iowa Dairy Goat Association Youth Ambassador.
An Iowa Dairy Goat Association Youth Ambassador is the chief youth promoter of dairy goats in Iowa. Furthermore, they are the public image of the Iowa Dairy Goat Association. This is a year-long position, beginning January 1st through December 31st. Their duties are to promote the value of dairy goats, goat keeping, and the uses of goat milk.
The youth ambassador position is open to 4-H and FFA members who are Iowa residents and members of IDGA. The youth does not need to have their own membership, but must be part of a family who are members.
By applying for a Youth Ambassador position you are agreeing to attend as many IDGA events throughout the year as possible. Specifically, youth ambassadors are expected to attend Animal Learning Day at ISU, the IDGA sponsored showing and fitting clinic and the Iowa State Fair. While it is encouraged, youth do not have to show animals at the Iowa State Fair. The Ambassador will also submit an article for the IDGA newsletter. While attending events you may be expected to address the group of people attending. Interacting with people of all ages is assumed due to the variety of events listed.
