Sewing.Loowitt-021The strength and vitality of the 4-H club program in Cowlitz County is dependent upon willingness of adults to become 4-H leaders to work with kids in a positive and meaningful way. Many of our current 4-H clubs are full….so if you are interested in having your children in the¬†Cowlitz County 4-H program….we need your help!!!

Potential new leaders will receive information and materials related to the 4-H volunteer application and screening process and receive other basic new leader materials related to the Cowlitz County 4-H Youth program. If the above day and time does not work for you, another time can be scheduled.

Once the application and screening process is completed then you will be required to complete new leader training to help you in your new 4-H volunteer role. Leader training dates will be communicated during the new leader orientation. New leader training is FREE and fun!!!

To become a potential 4-H leader, you must first attend “New 4-H Leader Orientation” that is offered the third Tuesday of each month, August – May, at the WSU Cowlitz Extension office at 5:30 pm. located at 1946 3rd Ave. Longview, WA. If you are interested in coming please let us know so that we can make the necessary accommodations.

For additional information and/or questions about becoming a 4-H leader, please contact Jennifer Leach, WSU Extension Faculty 4-H Youth Development at 577-3014 EXT. 4 or e-mail at
