How To Become an Adult 4-H Volunteer
Adult 4-H Application Process:
4-H YDP Volunteers are appointed by the County Director. This decision is made in consultation with appropriate 4-H staff. All appointments are made for the best interest of the 4-H Youth Development Program and 4-H members.
Adults are eligible to participate in 4-H if they are 18 years of age or older. A volunteer cannot simultaneously be a 4-H member. Chaperones must be 21 years of age or older. The 4-H Adult Volunteer Application Form is used for adults in organized 4-H clubs and camps, and any other time where an adult will have direct contact with 4-H youth. Payment is required to enroll in 4-H for program fees and 4-H accident/sickness insurance. You pay your enrollment fee to your Community Club Leader.
All volunteer applicants must complete the Leader Orientation.

Once all steps have been completed you will be sent a welcome letter and adult volunteer card.
