4-H members are helped by adult volunteer leaders. Every 4-H club has one or more adult leaders. 4-H volunteers are also required for “short-term” or non “CLUB” activities such as after-school programs, camps, county or area wide program management, and more!
These certified volunteer leaders may:
- Help teach boys and girls.
- Help organize a club.
- Help officers and assist at meetings.
- Inform parents and others about 4-H.
- Work with WSU Extension and/or other volunteers to plan or conduct programs and activities.
- Lead a Family 4-H Group for individual study/4-H involvement.
There are different kinds of 4-H leaders:
- General Club Leader: The main club leader and organizer who works with general club meetings.
- Project Leader: Works with members on their specific project work.
- Activity Leader: Responsible for one or more activities. Some examples are recreation, record keeping, public presentations, community service activities, camp or after-school activities.
- Resource Leader. May be certified to work with specific short-term programs or un-certified and listed as a contact to work with the supervision of certified volunteers or WSU faculty/staff to plan/conduct tasks and activities.
- Teen Leader: Works under the guidance of an adult. Helps with activities and events or helps members with their project work.
4-H Volunteers are valued by WSU Extension and the 4-H Youth Development Program. 4-H volunteers and extension staff work together as a team.
