Becoming a Mahaska County 4-H Volunteer is a fairly simple process. However, our youth are our most valuable resource, and we hold our volunteers to the highest standards of quality and safety. For their protection we do require a number of reference and safety checks for our ongoing volunteers. Below are examples of the paperwork you will be expected to complete before you will be approved as an official Mahaska County 4-H volunteer. We still want you to come to the Extension office to pick up a volunteer packet from Lea DeCook, our Office Assistant. Lea can also mail a background screening packet directly to you.
More 4-H Volunteer information can be found here. This site contains links to trainings, materials, and resources for 4-H volunteers.
We need to meet our potential volunteers before we can send them out to serve the youth of Mahaska County. You will need to schedule a time to come and meet with our 4-H staff at the Extension Office. At this meeting we will answer all of your questions, provide you with the necessary materials to do your job, and aquaint you with our office.
