We Need 4-H Volunteers

Provide the spark that inspires a generation.

4-H volunteers are essential to help youth make the most of a wide variety of learning experiences.

Volunteering is an opportunity for you to share your personal interests by demonstrating expertise in

subjects as varied as robotics, food and nutrition, public speaking, agricultural science, community

service and more. In 4-H, you can leverage your experience and skills to help a young person find

their own passions and interests.


With a variety of options, you can decide on the level of involvement that fits your skills and schedule:

• Lead youth within school-based, after-school and camp settings, or through a community club

• Serve as a chaperone, board member, judge

• Develop and support service opportunities for youth in your own community

• Teach using curriculum developed by your state university

• Work with other adults to create fun and exciting programs

If every young person could step into 4-H, imagine all the resourceful problem solvers, skilled workers

and capable leaders they’d become. That future is in our reach if we all lend our time and talents to guide

the young people who will create it.
