Last year, the Texas 4-H Youth Development program involved more than 38,000 adults in providing fun, hands-on learning opportunities to more than 650,000 Texas youth.
When you volunteer your time to help children explore, learn and grow, you are investing in them and in the future of your community. And you’ll probably find that you learn just as much from 4-H as they do!
- Decide what you have the time and interest to help youth explore and chart positive futures.
- Consider volunteering to lead a 4-H group in your community, your local school, or any other location where there are youth who need positive, committed adult role models in their lives.
- Share your skills, knowledge and talents while having fun with kids and you’re sure to make a difference in their lives.
4-H offers a variety of programs, activities and events designed specifically to support and enhance volunteer participation and involvement in kids’ lives. The work volunteers do with youth is also supported by university-developed educational materials and resources available through your county Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office.
In order to serve as a direct volunteer, all potential volunteers who have direct, face-to-face contact with youth, must be screened through the Youth Protection Standards Program, please contact your county Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office.
