LeaderYouth_LineDrawing_Filled4-H volunteers are the backbone of the 4-H program! 4-H cannot grow and cannot grow youth into tomorrow’s good citizens and community leaders without caring adults willing to share their time working with youth and other adults to create and conduct relevant activities and experiences.

To ensure 4-H youth have physically and emotionally safe, fun & learning environments at all 4-H activities, ALL adults with unsupervised access to 4-H youth must apply, be screened, trained, and certified for their specific roles.
