Do you know how to do arts and crafts, crochet/knit, or sand and paint a piece of wood? Have you ever decorated a cake, grown vegetables, or created scale models of trains/cars? Would you be interested in learning with youth how to build a rocket, how to work with animals, or how to work on small engines? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could be a 4-H volunteer! We are looking for 4-H adult leaders to work with youth on hands-on projects. You do not need to be an expert. We are looking for adults who may want to lead a session at our Family Learning Day, providing feedback to youth as a judge at the Community Arts Festival, or even help in the UW-Extension office. There are opportunities for you to learn with the youth, help support youth leaders, and share your knowledge. Volunteers can volunteer anywhere from once a year for a few hours to once a week!
Adult volunteers are essential to the 4-H program. They put 4-H’s researched-based, learn-by-doing model in action. Volunteers help youth learn and practice skills such as problem-solving, decision making, and communicating – skills crucial for their success in school, careers, and communities.
There are over 200 adult volunteers that have fun while making a positive impact on the youth in Fond du Lac County. Would you like to join them? Becoming a 4-H volunteer is easy. There are 4 steps in the process. I invite you to check out our 4-H webpage, contact the Fond du Lac County UW-Extension office at 920-929-3170, or e-mail Tracy Keifenheim at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about the many opportunities available.
