You are in the right place if you want to:

  • work with kids or spend more quality time with your own kids
  • have experiences you will never forget
  • explore your interests and share your talents
  • learn more!

In 4-H, kids and adults spend time together, learning new skills, developing hidden talents, making new friends and having fun.

The goal of 4-H is to help kids develop as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens in their communities. Adult volunteers who spend time with 4-H kids are key in this process. They form the foundation on which productive citizens are made.

You'll be able to meet new people and travel to interesting places. 4-H volunteers have many opportunities to attend conferences, get training and learn new skills.
