Become a volunteer
A caring and supportive relationship with an adult is a critical component of the 4-H youth development program. 4-H Washington County youth thrive because of you!
Do you have a passion and willingness to share it? Do you enjoy cooking? Sewing? Working with pets or livestock? What about robotics?
Are you a high school or college student looking to get involved? We have great opportunities for young people who are looking for experience working with youth, social media, garden and nutrition education, and more. Contact Alice to learn more!
Apply to be a volunteer! Email us at [email protected] to request a volunteer application and we will help you through the process of becoming a Washington County 4-H Volunteer!
Share your time in a variety of ways:
- Lead a club! Clubs can meet weekly or once a month, choose what works best for your schedule. We can help you start a club at a local school or at a community center or library. Not sure what activities to offer? No problem! Our lending library of hands-on activities and 4-H curriculum are available for use to all of our volunteers and clubs.
- Become a resource leader! Do you have a specific skill you'd like to share with young people? As a resource leader you can be a guest presenter at a club meeting, lead a workshop on a topic of your choice, or volunteer throughout the year at various events.
- Join the Washington County 4-H Association. Our association provides scholarships to local youth, hosts annual events, and helps to shape the county program. Meetings are generally held on the 4th Thursday of every month from 6:30-8:30 PM via Zoom.
- Volunteer with an existing club. We're happy to connect you with an existing club that could use additional leaders or a new club that is looking for leaders. You do not need to be a subject matter expert to lead a club.
All 4-H Volunteers are carefully screened and must successfully pass a criminal history check, reference check, and attend a new leader training.
