Adult volunteers play an important role in the 4-H program. They mentor 4-H youth, coordinate local community clubs, teach in 4-H school groups and help to plan and run events. Contact the Cumberland County 4-H office to learn about how to apply and receive training to be a 4-H volunteer.
Types of Volunteers Needed:
4-H Club Leader: Work in partnership with youth ages 9-18 to develop citizenship, leadership, and life skills. Whether you want to oversee a general club or a focus on a specific topic, you'll help young people learn the importance of record keeping, public speaking, and service learning, while learning new skills and having fun.
4-H Cloverbud Leader: Work with young children ages 5-8 to introduce them to a wide variety of hands-on activities that will help them develop social skills, begin to learn about the world of 4-H, and have fun.
4-H Project Leader: Share your skills, talents or special interests such as photography, horses, dogs, rabbits, sewing, computers or woodworking. In this role, you may be called upon to offer a number of sessions at an afterschool program, or assist a club leader by sharing your expertise and working with their club members.
4-H Afterschool Volunteer: Teach a special interest program in a local afterschool program.
Episodic 4-H Volunteer: We have a variety of volunteer opportunities that don't require a long-term commitment. Judging at the fair, helping with a specific fundraiser, assisting with a garden project, scoring 4-H project records, or organizing an annual county event to name a few.
