Becoming a Volunteer
Partner with Youth
4-H provides volunteers with an opportunity to partner with youth to discover their passions, adopt a growth mindset, practice self-reflection and set goals. 4-H projects and programs are focused around the core content of citizenship; healthy living; and science, engineering, and technology (SET). Volunteers can help youth to succeed and thrive.
Visit 4-H Volunteer to find available opportunities and get more information.
Before beginning their service as youth development volunteers, applicants will need to:
- Clear a background check, including Department of Justice (DOJ) fingerprinting.
- Complete an orientation on policies and procedures.
Additional training in working with youth is available at the State 4-H website.
There are both short-term and long-term opportunities for volunteers.
