You can help 4-H youth learn and practice new skills
As a 4-H volunteer, you are important to help our youth "learn-by-doing". You will work side-by-side with 4-H youth in youth-adult partnerships, where you grow together in shared responsibility and decision-making.
Improve your own leadership skills
Volunteering in 4-H will not only benefit the youth you are working with, but you will also be able to learn and practice personal leadership skills.
You will learn about and practice positive youth development and can take advantage of county and state leadership development conferences each year.
Ways you can volunteer
Volunteering in 4-H is flexible and rewarding. Share your expertise and experience with the youth and other volunteers to make things happen!
Apply through your County 4-H
All new and returning volunteer applications are processed through your local county Cooperative Extension office.
All volunteers must complete all application requirements, including the screening process and required trainings, before they are approved to volunteer in the University of California 4-H Youth Development Program.
Go to your county 4-H website for more information to join and volunteer.
