We welcome adults to become volunteers in our program. Volunteers go through training and screening to become 4-H leaders. There are several types of 4-H leaders:

Club Leaders are mentors who oversee a group of young people learning about one or more topic areas.

Assistant/Project Leaders help with a club, perhaps by leading a particular project area or completing an organizational task.

Resource Leaders are not affiliated with a particular club, but they might provide technical assistance to several clubs or plan countywide activities.

All adult volunteers must go through our screening process and attend trainings. The application includes

  1. Volunteer Screening & Education Process and Application (2-sided)
  2. Background Release form - Please note: Also include a photo copy of your official ID with your release form. The Background Release Form need to be returned to us in a sealed envelope marked "Confidential.
  3. Form for Personal References (three needed) - We will send this form to your references. Please provide complete contact information for three people who are not related to you.
  4. Volunteer Enrollment forms
  5. Acknowledgement of Risk and Waiver of Liability form
  6. 4-H Code of Ethics form

All materials and training are provided free of charge to volunteer leaders in recognition of their contributions to the program. You may begin your club meetings as soon as you receive confirmation that your application has been processed and you officially enroll in the county 4-H program.

Contact the Wasco County Extension Office at 541-296-5494 for an application or for questions about becoming a leader.
