Become a 4-H Volunteer!

Volunteers throughout Georgia support our mission of assisting youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing citizens.  From serving as a chaperone at 4-H Summer Camp to leading a special interest team, 4-H offers a variety of opportunities for volunteer service in youth development programming.
