Who is a 4-H Volunteer?

 “A Kentucky 4-H volunteer is anyone who contributes time, energy or talent to the Kentucky 4-H Youth Development Program and is not paid by University of Kentucky funds.”

 

In what ways may a 4-H Volunteer be involved?

 There are a variety of ways in which people may volunteer for 4-H.  Many volunteer roles involve working directly with other; others do not.  There are seven specific types of 4-H volunteer roles in Kentucky.  These include the following:

 

 Project Club Leader

(a)  the project leader is an “expert” or serves as a resource in one specific project area

 

(b)  project clubs are usually county-wide and are not restricted to specific locations within the county.

 

Project Clubs must have a minimum of five members, at least three officers and a volunteer leader.  An example of a Project Club Leader includes a Horse Club Leader or a Livestock Club Leader, in which on-going programming is offered, membership is county-wide, club officers are elected and conduct the meeting.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or a Camp Counselor and are 18 years or older, please click on the volunteer application packet link below and fill it out and return to the Extension office. All applications are pending until a complete background check has been done. Once that is complete, you will be notified and scheduled for an interview and or orientation.
