Table Set Up for InformationBelieve it or not, we need you! We need you to get involved with 4-H and serve as a volunteer for our organization. Volunteers play a vital role in the ongoing success and growth of the young people in the Union County 4-H program. National 4-H reports over 500,000 volunteers who provide caring and supportive mentoring to all 6 million 4-Hers helping them to grow into true leaders. 

Research shows that 4-H helps young people excel beyond their peers. With the support of volunteers, we are able to accomplish that and so much more. Locally, Union County 4-H volunteers spent more than 800 hours reaching over 6,000 young people through various programs from school enrichment, special interest, county events, summer day camp program, and clubs.
