Volunteer With 4-H!

Volunteer with 4-H

4-H Youth Development Program seeks 4-H club leaders and event volunteers. Interested adult volunteers would provide activities that inspire and shape youth, give them opportunities to master skills, and/or enrich their knowledge. Hours and commitment are flexible, and training and ongoing support are provided. Background and DMV check required.

What Do Volunteers Do?

A 4-H volunteer is many things - mentor, advisor, friend, teacher, referee, role model, pacesetter and much more. Most importantly, a 4-H leader genuinely cares about young people and wants to help them learn and grow.


  • Teach young people important skills
  • Help plan and conduct events
  • Work in partnership (adults and youth) to lead 4-H clubs, activities, and events
  • Support and create community service opportunities
  • Share their knowledge and interests with young people
  • Contribute by promoting and supporting 4-H

We are currently looking for volunteers with skills in:

  • Cooking
  • Baking
  • Woodworking
  • Hunting/Wildlife
  • Shooting Sports
  • Sewing
  • Any area of fine arts

Who can be a 4-H Volunteer?

Parents and other interested adults over the age of 21 who are willing to volunteer part of their time and skills to teach youth in their community can be 4-H leaders and volunteers.

Contact Jen Clancey at jja26@cornell.edu or call the 4-H office at 315-536-5123 for more information.
