Start the Background Check.
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. To receive a Volunteer CPSP Background Check Packet, please contact Lea DeCook, our Office Assistant at 641-673-5841 or email decookL@iastate.edu.
Meet the Mahaska County 4-H Staff.
Amy Ver Meer-Brainard
Mahaska County Youth Coordinator
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 nessecary materials to do your job, and aquaint you with our office.
