4-H programs reach out to kids and their families to build skills for life. Your time, knowledge, and heart for youth could make the difference in the quality of life in our community. Adult volunteers play an important role in the 4-H program. Volunteers coordinate local community clubs and help to conduct local, regional, state and national 4-H events. Pend Oreille County Extension will provide you with the support and training you will need along the way.
There are many ways to volunteer, just ask!
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 or community service 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.
