Become a Linn County Extension 4-H Volunteer and Youth Mentor
Volunteering for Linn County Extension & Outreach can provide you with a wide variety of opportunities to encourage, educate, and mentor youth. Volunteer jobs may be one-time events, such as teaching a project workshop, or may be ongoing like becoming a 4-H Club Leader.
Linn County Extension & Outreach needs many volunteers who are willing to share creative ideas, time, talent and skills to support youth throughout Linn County. Help us empower youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults. Each of us play critical roles in developing safe, nurturing, and supportive learning environments for youth to strengthen their assets and capacities in order to reach their full potential.
Our goal is to provide positive youth development learning experiences; hands-on learning experiences and healthy relationships between young people and adults.
We invite you to join us in that goal! Give Time. Guide Youth. Get Involved. Complete this Volunteer Interest Form to get started. What new and challenging volunteer role would you like to create and how can we support you? Please share your ideas with us.
Volunteers guide youth/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.”
“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.”
If you are a current volunteer – thanks for all you do! And if you’re thinking about volunteering, we invite you to experience the satisfaction that comes from empowering youth to reach their full potential!
