Become a UGA Extension Volunteer!
Volunteers are fundamental to the UGA Extension 4-H program. They provide the assistance needed to enable youth to become healthy, self-directing contributing members of society. As a 4-H volunteer, you have the opportunity to be a leader, mentor and role model. As a UGA Extension 4-H volunteer with Lamar County, you may find yourself in a supervisory role which may include teaching a class, attending a week-long 4-H camp or chaperoning a 4-H activity for a few hours.
All adults who wish to volunteer with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension 4-H county programs MUST be screened through the University of Georgia Human Resources System because of their roles in supervising children. Supervising is defined as an adult who directs a youth's (other than their personal child's) behavior during an activity or event.
The screening process includes:
- Completion of an application
- Documentation from two references
- Background checks (Criminal and National Sex Offender Registry)
You may find the application and further information on becoming a UGA Extension 4-H volunteer in Lamar County below:
