Become a 4-H Leader
We are building a group of adult volunteers who will organize 4-H clubs and serve as mentors for youth. This is really where the rubber hits the road: volunteer leaders are the foundation of the 4-H program. If you believe youth learn best through practical, hands-on activities; that youth should be partners with adults in the educational process; and that youth benefit from being fully engaged in decision-making processes - then we'd like to encourage you to become a Lane County 4-H leader! Please read the "Information for Leaders" section that follows, then fill out the 4-H Volunteer Application Packet and register for a Leader Training class. We need both returning leaders and new leaders to make this the best 4-H program possible.
