Volunteer Resources

Be a 4-H volunteer, 4-H provides the opportunity for you to share your talents and time to help youth develop as they follow a positive path to their future. Research shows young people significantly benefit from having caring adults in their lives.  Do you have time to de that person?  Do you like robotics, GPS, engineering, scrapbooking, cooking, gardening, dog care, financial management, leadership, or woodworking? These are just some of all the wonderful things to do in 4-H. It's not just a program for farm kids. You can commit to volunteer at my levels some opportunities are short-term and others can last longer – it really is up to you.

4-H needs:

Club leaders--organizational leaders who provide guidance to he local 4-H clubs.

Project leaders--volunteers who have skills or talents they want to share with young people.  This is an excellent way to set your own schedule to work with young people. Help them develop a passion for the things you are interested in--like woodworking, caring for an animal, robotics, cooking, sewing and a whole lot more.  resource leaders--people who can only make a short term commitment but want to help out – at camps, fairs, clinics or other ways.

parent helpers of all kinds.

Short Term leaders--people who can only make a short term commitment but want to help out – at camps, fairs, clinics or other ways.
