4-H Volunteer Opportunities
You can help 4-H youth learn and practice new skills
Volunteers are important to help 4-H youth "learn-by-doing". As a 4-H volunteer, you 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 learn and be able to practice leadership skills.
In addition to courses on youth development, adult volunteers can take advantage of county and state level leadership development conferences each year.
Apply through your County Cooperative Extension office
All new and returning volunteer applications are processed through their local county Cooperative Extension office. The County Director approves applications to become a 4-H volunteer in the county. You must complete all application requirements, including the screening process and required trainings, before you are approved.
You may be asking yourself, “Am I complete?”, “Can I lead 4-H projects now?”…please contact the 4-H Office, 530-527-3101, to find out what you need to do to complete the process to become a Tehama County 4-H Adult Volunteer.
