All new volunteers are required to attend a New Volunteer Orientation. The orientation will offer an overview of the 4-H program structure, its mission and values, positive youth development practices, club management, and risk management and youth safety, among other things.
However, 4-H offers many resources for volunteers that we encourage you to review.
Volunteers, we have curriculum resources! Whether you are brand new or a seasoned leader, you could pick up a thing or two from some of our 4-H curriculum books, workbooks, resource books, and more!
These resources are available for you to peruse and make copies of in the office, or, with Lena's pre-approval, to check out for a certain amount of time. You are also welcome to explore our library for ideas for resources you might want to purchase for your own club.
The 4‑H brand and 4‑H logo are used by 4‑H professionals and volunteers to support all of their work with 4‑H youth. The 4‑H logo guidelines, brand message recommendations, and impact story suggestions are provided to ensure proper use of the 4‑H logo and brand.
The 4‑H Name and Emblem have special protections from Congress, protected by code 18 USC 707. For details, please refer to the Graphic Standards Guide below.
All usage of the 4-H Name and Emblem must be approved by Lena Hosking
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.)
