Welcome to the nation's largest, outside of school positive youth development organization! For more than 100 years, 4-H has assisted youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to find their "spark" and become self-directing, productive members of society. 4-H is an informal, practical, learn-by-doing educational program for youth.
Jackson County 4-H program believes attending regional and national leadership event are a great opportunity to develop your leadership skills. Please fill out this form to help with event registration fees.

Volunteer with 4-H!
We couldn't reach more than 800 Jackson County youth each year without the help of our volunteers! 4-H volunteers are essential to help youth make the most of a wide variety of learning experiences. Volunteering is an opportunity for you to share your personal interests by demonstrating expertise in subjects as varied as robotics, food and nutrition, public speaking, agricultural science, community service and more. In 4-H, you can leverage your experience and skills to help a young person ﬁnd their own passions and interests. We welcome adults to become volunteers in our programs!
Do you have what it takes to become a 4-H Volunteer? To apply, you will need to complete this 4-H volunteer leader application packet and follow the instructions to complete the necessary paperwork prior to attending the mandatory training session. We can mail you a packet, if desired.
This document is designed for use with volunteers, parents/guardians, and individuals who supervise 4-H youth (e.g., an aunt, grandfather) for some or all of their 4-H involvement. (See at bottom of agreement.)
