Wondering what direction
your life is going in?
There is nothing more satisfying than volunteering your time to help our youth become competent, contributing, caring members of society.
There are many opportunities for volunteering either as a leader or resource person, we need your expertise!! In 4-H, some adults volunteer to help their own children in 4-H. Others enjoy working with children and enjoy watching and participating in their success. Still others remember 4-H in their own youth experience and want to give back to a great program. Whatever your reason, your input and assistance is needed in 4-H. Volunteering in the 4-H program can be at whatever level you feel comfortable with.
Being a volunteer in 4-H does not mean that you will have to lead a club all by yourself. . . there are many different types of volunteer positions available to accommodate your needs. We will provide you with continued training and resources that will allow you to succeed! In addition, we have teaching materials for most project areas that make it very easy for anybody to guide youth in learning a specific topic.
