4-H Volunteers are a key component of the 4-H program, which focuses on citizenship, leadership, and life skills development using a "learn-by-doing" educational model.

With each volunteer comes knowledge, experiences, and skills taught to 4-H youth and shared with the 4-H program. No matter your background or expertise, you can join the 4-H community.

  • Lead community clubs, school-based or after-school programs, and camp settings
  • Serve as chaperone, board member, event judge, or camp counselor
  • Create community service opportunities for youth in your area
  • Work with other adults to create fun and exciting programs
