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.  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.
