Being a volunteer
Our volunteers are an essential part of the 4-H Youth Development Program.
By volunteering, you are helping to grow the skills of 4-H youth, help them find their spark and become our future leaders.
Ways you can volunteer
Volunteering in 4-H is flexible and rewarding. Share your expertise and experience with 4-H youth in your community and collaborate with other volunteers . . . we all grow together!
4-H offers as wide a variety of projects as our volunteers are willing and able to offer to their community - a project needs to provide hands-on learning and can fall into many categories.

Process to become a new 4-H Volunteer
1. Find a club
See our list of clubs to find one near you. You can also contact Sierra Washington at email@example.com in the Plumas-Sierra UC Extension office for help in finding clubs near you to start you on the process of becoming a volunteer. Contact the club leader to learn more about the volunteer opportunities available in the club.
2. Screening Process
All new volunteers must go through a screening process. Our #1 priority in 4-H is the safety of young people. We do all we can to protect young people and keep them safe while they are in our care. When you become a 4-H volunteer, you are part of the plan to keep our young people safe.
