4-H Adult Volunteers

How can ADULTS get involved?

4-H is built on a foundation of adult volunteers. The program is made possible through their dedication and support of youth members. Adult volunteers serve as a guide and mentor by teaching youth practical life skills.

Adult volunteers may:

  • Be a Club Leader and provide administrative support for the 4-H community clubs.

  • Be a project or program volunteer in a particular project area.

  • Be an activity or event volunteer and provide leadership within a specific, short-term project or activity.

  • Be a resource volunteer and provide expertise in club organization, planning and conducting activities, or specialized subjects relating to the program. Local programs can benefit from the support of event planning, accounting, fundraising and variety of other professions.

  • Other adult volunteers - Help with transportation, management, or recruitment. They may also serve as elected or appointed officers or committee members for the county council.

Volunteers working with youth must go through a background check and orientation to the 4-H program. To join 4-H as a volunteer, see Adult Member Resources, Volunteer Forms and Info.
