4-H Volunteers

Volunteer Role Descriptions

This section is designed to facilitate the sharing of volunteer role descriptions within 4-H Programs. Each identified volunteer role should have a written description designed for it. This gives both the volunteer and the organization a clear definition of the expectations of the volunteer. The role description can clarify the purpose of the role, identify responsibilities, relationships, resources and time expectations of the people involved. It establishes lines of communication between volunteers and salaried staff.

This collection of volunteer position descriptions provides numerous examples for use by Extension professionals. Once you have downloaded the file onto your local computer, the position descriptions may be modified and adapted to match your identified volunteer needs.
