Island County 4-H Wants You!

If you are interested in becoming a 4-H Volunteer, there are some steps to go through before becoming an official enrolled volunteer.

It takes a lot of teamwork and coordination from families, volunteers, and staff to provide safe and fun programming for our youth.  To continue to create quality programs and ensure a safe and welcoming 4-H community, there is a bit of a process when applying to become a volunteer.  Here’s a quick look at what you may expect during the application process.

  1. Apply to become an Enrolled Volunteer.  Find the Online Volunteer Application Here
  2. When the application is received, Instructions for the online trainings will be emailed back to you. These take 1-2 hours and can be completed at your convenience.  Please keep in mind that some projects, like Shooting Sports, may require additional volunteer trainings.
  3. While you are working on the online trainings, a request will be sent for your personal references to complete an online survey.
  4. Your club leader or the 4-H Coordinator will conduct an interview with you with only a handful of questions.
  5. Last but not least, a background check will be run on each applicant before final approval.

Once we have all of those steps completed you will be official!  It may sound like a lot of work but it really goes by pretty fast, and it’s for a good cause!
