4-H Youth Development

Volunteer Locally

Welcome and thank you for considering volunteering to work with youth in Kansas 4-H.  The Kansas 4-H Youth Development Program depends on adult and youth volunteers to help youth gain the five Kansas 4-H Life Skills of a positive self concept, an inquiring mind, a concern for the community, healthy interpersonal relationships and sound decision making.

If you have not already contacted the local Extension Office you plan to volunteer for, please do so as soon as you can, to obtain the required Kansas 4-H Volunteer Service Application.  The completed application is your first step toward volunteering with Kansas 4-H.  All Kansas 4-H volunteers must complete the Kansas 4-H Volunteer Volunteer Screening process through their local Extension Office to work with Kansas 4-H youth.  Your local Extension Office will guide you through the process.

The main roles for local volunteers are Community Club LeaderProject Leader or Activity Leader.  There are many more roles for volunteers, check with your local club and/or Extension Office for more information.
