Volunteer for 4-H
Volunteering in 4-H is a great way to help improve your community and family. As a volunteer you will become very familiar with our creed to "Make the Best Better!" as you strive to help make things better around you. 4-H youth need both you and the discipline and the recognition that comes from participating in something bigger than themselves. 4-H is in every state in the United States as well as in some parts of Canada and Europe. By volunteering with 4-H you will become one of thousands of volunteers in the world who are striving to help make our world a better place through supporting our youth.
In our Afterschool Program you can volunteer to be a leader for clubs that meet directly after school. This opportunity will give you a chance to teach a class of approximately 15 students anything from service to cooking to camping. We currently have 4-H clubs in elementary schools, middle schools, junior high schools and some high schools. These afterschool clubs give children a safe place to be after school.
In our Mentoring Program, you can volunteer to be paired with an "at risk" child between the age of 10 and 14. We prefer a one year commitment during which you build a relationship with your assigned youth (mentee) by visiting them for one hour a week. Once a month we provide an activity for you to attend with your mentee.
In our traditional 4-H clubs there are 2 options for which you can volunteer. You can run a Family Club for your family where you could focus on what you would like your children to learn and have them work on projects to enter into the fair, or you can be a leader of a Community Club where you invite children in the neighborhood to participate in a club with other children of similar ages so you can tailor your lessons to a particular age group.
