Discover the world together with young people… be a 4-H Volunteer! Arizona young people need you to step up and serve as a mentor, coach, guide or resource. In 4-H, you are more than just a volunteer. You are instrumental in inspiring the next generation.
In 4-H, there are lots of ways to share your talents and time to help youth develop along a positive path to the future. Research shows that kids benefit from having caring adults in their lives. Won't you be that person? Do you like robotics, GPS, scrapbooking, cooking, gardening, dog care, financial management, or woodworking? These are just a few of the fun things to do in 4-H. It's not just a program for farm kids. Some opportunities are short-term and others can last longer – it really is up to you.
Arizona 4-H has a role for you, no matter what your interests or abilities. Don't worry if you don't think you know enough to teach others. As a caring adult, you can learn right alongside young people and have fun in the process. So – what are you waiting for?
To get involved, contact your local UA Cooperative Extension County Extension office. You can easily find your local office by clicking on the map on this Website. Ask for the 4-H agent and tell them that you would like to volunteer today. For some quick information on 4-H volunteering, see our Volunteer FAQs.
Volunteers are the HEART of the 4-H program. On this site, you will find a wealth of resources designed to support you as a 4-H volunteer. In addition there are resources that you will find helpful as you work with young people. 4-H Youth Development volunteers are valued partners in working with youth and Extension agents.
