HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.

Paraphrase from an essay, “Within My Reach” by Forest Witcroft

There are many volunteer opportunities available: volunteers provide leadership for projects or clubs, manage county or state events and activities, take programs into schools, and help with special interest activities. Volunteers are the core of delivering 4-H Youth Development. Volunteers support the 4-H’s mission of teaching others and enhancing personal growth.
