Idaho’s 4-H program wouldn’t exist without its thousands of volunteers. In every part of the state, 4-H volunteers coordinate 4-H community clubs, lead 4-H projects and help to plan and conduct local, regional, state and national 4-H events.

People volunteer in many different ways depending on their interests, skills and time they can devote to 4-H. As a 4-H volunteer you might:

  • Lead a 4-H project in a subject area that excites you — forestry, fishing, fashion, foods, farm animals and many more.
  • Teach workshops at a summer camp or special event. Share your favorite hobby or skill.
  • Judge at the county fair or at livestock events and contests.
  • Manage a 4-H community club. Schedule club meetings, train club officers, recruit parents to help out and be the communication link between your club and the UI Extension office.
  • Be an Outreach to Military Kids volunteer. Work with local youth groups to plan fun and educational opportunities for youths from military families. Help with family camps.
  • Host visiting 4-Hers or their chaperones in your home for a month-long summer stay or for yearlong school exchanges.
  • Chaperone 4-Hers on one-month cultural experiences in Norway, Japan, Argentina, Australia or Finland.
  • Help with 4-H fundraising. Contact Friends of 4-H to learn more.
  • Become a certified shooting sports instructor.
