Volunteer Resources

Competent, caring adult volunteers are an Essential Element of the Iowa 4-H program!

Volunteers contribute their time and talents to 4-H and in return 4-H has the responsibility to provide them with the positive youth development knowledge and skills they need to effectively work with youth. Our volunteers are what help our 4-H'ers grow into true leaders. 

All volunteers must complete and Iowa State University Extension Child Protection and Safety Policy (CPSP) process, including a background screening and agree to the Code of Conduct for Iowa 4-H Volunteers. 


Potential Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to get involved and volunteer through the Mills County 4-H program! Consider becoming a:

  • 4-H Club Leader
  • Project Superintendent
  • Clover Kids Volunteer
  • Youth Committee

4-H/Clover Kids Leader Resources

All new 4-H and Clover Kids club leaders must complete the New Volunteer Training. This training is designed to give new volunteers a better working knowledge of positive youth development, the Iowa 4-H Equation, and tools that will help them be more confident and capable in their roles working with youth! 

Returning 4-H and Clover Kids club leaders must complete Annual Leader Training. Leaders may choose to attend the in-person training on January 20, 2022 at 6:30 PM or complete the training through 4-H Online.

Please contact Amber at ambersue@iastate.edu or 712-624-8616 with any questions regarding both the New Volunteer Training and Annual Leader Training.
