Become a 4-H Volunteer

Mason County 4-H provides many opportunities for adult volunteers to act as thoughtful, fun mentors to our youth!  Volunteering in the Mason County 4-H Youth Development Program is a privilege and requires the completion of a few simple steps.

Steps to Volunteer with 4-H:

Please find the document with steps for new and returning volunteers. Returning volunteers need to enroll annually and pass a background check every 3 years. New volunteers will complete all of the following steps.

  1. Complete and return the Mason County 4-H Volunteer Application to the 4-H Program Coordinator
  2. Complete the online Required Volunteer Training:
    • Visit the eXtension website to login and view the “WSU Put the Child First” video
      (the Mason County enrollment key is MASON4H)
    • Visit the eXtension website to login and complete “4-H Volunteer Orientation Modules
      (the Mason County enrollment key is MASON)
  3. Enroll in 4-H online as a volunteer. You must complete all required enrollment information online directly at Step-by-step instructions can be found here.
  4. Complete a background check. One will be sent to you from “Sterling Volunteers” only after the above steps are completed.
  5. Meet with us! The 4-H program coordinator will reach out to schedule a time for volunteer orientation, and if you are starting a new club we will provide a 4-H Club Kit.

Once you have completed these steps, we invite you to stay connected through the regularly scheduled 4-H Council leadership meetings, hosted via Zoom the second Tuesday of each month at 6pm. These meetings will provide you with networking opportunities, a chance to ask questions and knowledge needed to achieve the 4-H motto, “To Make the Best Better.”
