Volunteers make a difference in our programs!

Whether you want to be a club leader or work with kids on a short-term project, there's a role for you in 4-H. While many volunteer roles involve working directly with youth - others do not. Some volunteers are engaged with the program for a long period of time, such as leading a 4-H Club. Others volunteer on a one-time, short-term, or even an annual basis. Opportunities could include serving as a judge for public speaking, leading a workshop on your favorite topic, organizing a community service project, serving on an Advisory Committee, or judging an event at the Hemlock Fair. In whatever role you may choose to volunteer, the CCE-Livingston office can provide training, resources, and support that can help make your volunteer position as rewarding as possible for everyone involved.

Prospective volunteers should contact the CCE-Livingston office to discuss the goals of volunteering. You will be asked to complete an application form and consent to a criminal background screening (at Cooperative Extension's expense) as a means of ensuring the safety and security both of our volunteers and the people we serve through our programs.
