Become a Volunteer
We have a strong need for caring, mentoring adults in the Wahkiakum 4-H program. Your time, knowledge and heart for youth could make a big difference in the quality of life in your community. Washington State University Extension will provide you the support and training you’ll need along the way. You will be a valued partner in helping grow kids. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities depending on your time and interest; including club leaders, chaperones for local and state events, project leaders to lend expertise, and fair volunteers. Volunteers are asked to fill out an application and to attend a short orientation to the Wahkiakum 4-H program. Please contact Carrie Backman for more information at the contact information below.
