4-H Volunteers

Volunteers and parents help make 4-H possible. Without 4-H volunteers and parents the program would not have the mentors and leaders that 4-Hers need in order to learn the new skills that 4-H has to offer youth. With each volunteer comes knowledge, experiences, and skills which can be taught to 4-H youth and shared with the 4-H program "to make the best better." Volunteers and parents are a major reason for 4-H's success in youth development. Since 1902, parents and volunteers have helped the 4-H program develop successful leaders, build young minds, and set the path for 4-Hers to take the world by storm.

If you are interested in becoming a 4-H Volunteer, please contact the Extension Office at 419-354-9050 for more information.

I pledge my Head to give children the information I can, to help them see things clearly and to make wise decisions.

I pledge my Heart to encourage and support children no matter whether they have success or disappointments.
I pledge my Hands to help children's groups; if I cannot be a leader, I can help in many equally important ways.
I pledge my Health to keep children strong and will for a better world through 4-H, for children's groups, our community, our country, and our world.
