4-H Volunteers

Volunteer with 4-H

Volunteers make a difference in our programs! Volunteering is fun and rewarding, and enables you to share your experiences with others.

Imagine a young person's satisfaction at learning a new skill, or at doing a job well. You can help our young people as they gain confidence and self-esteem - essential ingredients for happy, productive citizens.

Whether you want to be a club leader or work with kids on a short-term project, there's a role for you in 4-H. Many volunteer roles involve working directly with youth while others do not. Some volunteers are engaged with the program for a long period of time, such as leading a 4-H Club for several years. Others volunteer on a one-time, short-term or even an annual basis, for example, volunteering at a special interest workshop, serving as a judge for public speaking or for an event with 4-H members at the Ontario County Fair. In whatever role you may choose to volunteer, our 4-H office can provide training, resources and support that can help make your volunteer position as rewarding as possible for everyone involved.
