Be a Volunteer

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.   

 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.
