Becoming a 4-H Volunteer Leader

4-H Volunteers

Volunteer leaders are a key component of the 4-H program, which focuses on citizenship, leadership, and life skills development using a "learn-by-doing" educational model. 4-H is unique in its pursuit of effective youth-adult partnerships. These partnerships ensure that both youth and adults grow together in shared responsibility and decision-making. This 4-H volunteer echoes a common sentiment, stating, "As a 4-H leader, I have truly received as much from the program as my children have."

No matter your background or expertise, you can join the 4-H community.  As a parent, a project leader, or in any other leadership capacity, you can offer your unique talents and perspectives.
