Children sitting in circle learning about animalsVolunteers are the key to our success in Union County 4-H. Whether you’re interested in becoming a club leader or just have a few hours to invest, we have opportunities for you to make a difference in the lives of the young people we serve in the 4-H program. Volunteers offer the nurturing, skills, dedication, and knowledge that can significantly impact the development of our young people. 

So what do volunteers do?

A 4-H volunteer does not fit in one box. They serve in various capacities including mentor, advisor, teacher, role model, and most importantly someone who cares genuinely about the youth they serve in the program. 

Volunteers can help out in different ways including, but not limited to: 

  • Serve as a guest speaker
  • Help plan and conduct events
  • Judge project record books and presentations
  • Share his or her knowledge and interests with young people
  • Supports and creates community service opportunities
  • Recruit other volunteers
  • Serve as a member of the advisory committee

In honor of Make a Difference Day, I challenge you to consider volunteering for 4-H either as a club leader, help with special projects/events, assist with a project of interest, and so much more. There’s always a place for you as a volunteer in the Union County 4-H program. To learn more, contact the local 4-H office at 704.283.3735 or 704.283.3740.
