4-H Volunteers


We are thankful for our volunteers. Volunteers are the keys to our success and whether you are interested in becoming a club leader, or just have a few hours to invest, we have challenging and fun jobs for adults and teens who want to make a difference. People volunteer for 4-H for many reasons. One obvious benefit for parents is spending time with and being a positive role model for their children. Other benefits volunteers say they enjoy are: enhanced self esteem, leadership skill development, job related skill development, and social opportunities.
