You can help 4-H youth learn and practice new skills
Volunteers are important to help 4-H youth "learn-by-doing". As a 4-H volunteer, you work side-by-side with 4-H youth in youth-adult partnerships, where you grow together in shared responsibility and decision-making.
Improve your own leadership skills
Volunteering in 4-H will not only benefit the youth you are working with, but you will also learn and be able to practice leadership skills.
In addition to courses on youth development, adult volunteers can take advantage of county and state level leadership development conferences each year.
