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.
Step 1 – Apply to become an Enrolled Volunteer. Find the Online Volunteer Application Here
Step 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.
Step 3 – While you are working on the online trainings, a request will be sent for your personal references to complete an online survey.
Step 4 – Your club leader or the 4-H Coordinator will conduct an interview with you with only a handful of questions.
Step 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!
