Volunteering with Iowa 4-H
Are you curious about volunteering for 4-H? Check out our orientation videos and other volunteer support resources found on the website. Visit with Extension staff in your county office about volunteer opportunities.
Over 10,000 volunteers guide 4-H members in becoming productive citizens, outstanding communicators, effective leaders, and successful learners. But just as important as what volunteers give is what they get back! In a recent survey, Iowa volunteers shared that:
“My volunteer experience has helped me both professionally and with my family. I seem to look at kids in a different light and try to encourage all to be the best that they can be.” ~ 2008 Volunteer Impact Study
“I feel a great sense of excitement and pride when youth accomplish something they never thought they could do. It is wonderful to see kids work through a project and feel proud of what they can do. This keeps me volunteering in school and church, as well as the 4-H program. I believe youth can be encouraged to do great things.” ~ 2008 Volunteer Impact Study
Iowa 4-H needs many volunteers who are willing to share creative ideas, time, talent, and skills to support youth at the community, county, and state level.
If you are a current volunteer – thanks for all you do!
