Incredible Exchange Applications Now Open!

The 4-H Incredible Exchange is a summer program offering youth ages 13 – 15 an opportunity to volunteer in their community, connect with an adult mentor, learn job skills, and earn a certificate for a recreational or cultural activity of their choice. 
Youth may apply now through April 30th. Eligible applicants will be invited to an interview session in May, where they will meet mentors from our different volunteer sites. Volunteer sites include community youth centers, local animal shelter, and tourist attractions. During the interview, youth can ask questions and learn more the sites and their volunteer role. After interviews, youth may select their top three site preferences. Matching will be based on a combination of youth and mentor preference. Youth who are matched will receive an invitation at the end of May.

Following completion of 25-50 volunteer hours, youth earn a certificate to use toward a recreational or cultural activity of their choice. Examples of certificates include ski or golf pass, art classes, dance, martial arts, music or horseback riding lessons, and YMCA passes.
