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 necessary materials to do your job, and acquaint you with our office.
