Make A Difference: Volunteer

Volunteers and members are the heart of the program.  What is done in your local community with your 4-H members and their families determines whether 4-H has meaning and value.  You never know the far reaching affects you, one member, or a group may have even around the world.  4-H is like the small stone thrown into the pond. Eventually the impact of that one small object reaches far away shores.

4-H volunteers can wear many hats.  You may be a mentor, teacher, advisor, guide, consultant, and a friend.  This is what 4-H is all about – the positive development of youth.

Volunteers can assume a variety of roles to support the 4-H member, club, or county program.  Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks.  Some tasks include leading a club, teaching youth about a project, leading an activity, serve as a mentor, attending leadership meetings, assist in planning events, and more.  Contact your local Extension office to find hear about the current opportunities that are available.
