4-H Volunteers: 

Volunteers are the heart of 4-H.  Volunteer 4-H leaders provide direct leadership and educational support to youth in Grant County.  Although most volunteers lead clubs, there are other leadership roles in Grant County 4-H.  Some volunteers might serve as community coordinators, assisting Extension staff in recruiting and organizing 4-H work in a particular area.  Others serve as resource leaders sharing their skills and talents with club leaders, as activity leaders for camps and special programs or serving as committee members involved in program planning with professional staff. While other volunteers serve on interview committees for scholarships and awards.  To find out how you can become a 4-H leader, or serve 4-H in a different capacity call the Extension office at (541) 575-1911.

4-H Fair Volunteers: 

The Grant County 4-H program continues to seek volunteers at fair time as clerks, office help and other duties.  The 4-H fair events begin in early August with the 4-H Horse Show and Food & Nutrition, Clothing, Knitting Skills Contests and continue through the month of August finishing up with the Grant County Fair August 23-28, 2011.  To find out how you can help at 4-H events and activities call the Extension office at (541) 575-1911.
