Volunteers are essential to the success of the 4-H program. All registered adult 4-H volunteers working directly with 4-H youth in South Carolina complete a screening process and receive training at no cost to themselves. Teens may also serve in volunteer roles through the 4-H Teen Leadership project.
Roles for Volunteers in 4-H Volunteers can serve in a variety of roles, including the following:
- 4-H Club Leader
- 4-H After School Helper or Coordinator
- School Enrichment Teacher
- Project Expert or Judge
- Advisory Council Member
- Event Organizer or Chaperone
- Fund-Raising Committee Member
- Web Developer
- Marketing Assistant
Please contact your County Extension 4-H Office for more information on the needs for 4-H volunteers where you live. 4-H has a responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment for youth. Therefore, all 4-H volunteers complete a screening and orientation process before being appointed. To register to be a 4-H volunteer, complete a 4-H Volunteer Registration Form and the Extension Volunteer Status Form (authorizing background and references check).
