Volunteers are essential to the success of the 4-H program.

Teens may also serve in volunteer roles through the 4-H Teen Leadership project.

  • Teen Leaders – We are looking for teen leaders to assist with 4-H programming in the County.  Teen Leaders also have opportunities to attend statewide 4-H teen leadership trainings held throughout the year.
