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.
To become a 4-H volunteer, you will be invited to special training meetings and will receive newsletters and other written materials to help you learn your responsibilities as a volunteer. Your County Extension Educator and current volunteers will mentor you too.
If you would like to learn more about becoming a 4-H volunteer, contact the Extension office in your county!
Please download the Volunteer Packet, complete and submitt to Meigs County Extension BEFORE December 1.
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.

The dedication and commitment of our volunteers make 4-H Youth Development possible. Volunteers generously offer their time, expertise and provide support for hundreds of 4-H programs all over Ohio.
There is no specific age requirement to be a 4-H Volunteer. Youth volunteers, with the emotional maturity and leadership ability necessary to function in a volunteer role, are important partners in Ohio 4-H programs.
Ohio 4-H works with a variety of individuals, with differing interests, skills and abilities, as 4-H volunteers.
