4-H Tip of the Week

Volunteers Needed in 4-H

Volunteers are the backbone of the 4-H program. They are the organizers, teachers, and counselors who make the program available to youth. Utilizing volunteers effectively can assure the success of the local program. Positive youth development research shows the importance of caring adults in the lives of young people. Contact your local Extension office for details about the following volunteer opportunities or access the information on the county Extension web page.
