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┬áCowlitz 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.

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 2nd Thursday of each month, August – May, at the WSU Cowlitz Extension office at 7:00 p.m. located at 1946 3rd Ave. Longview, WA. Please let Jennifer know in advance that you plan to attend.

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
