4-H Looking for Volunteer Leaders
The Pike County 4-H youth development program is looking for adult volunteers to enable kids to have fun, meet new people, build self-confidence and learn by doing cool things. 4-H relies on adult volunteers to guide 4-H members as they work on projects and participate in activities.
No special skills are needed; just enthusiasm and a genuine interest to help youth make the most of learning opportunities. Leaders are supported by Penn State Extension with training, guidance and curriculum. The 4-H Pledge “Head, Heart, Hands and Health” are the four “H’s,” which encourage the development of the whole child. 4-H leaders help the members reach their potential and build skills for a lifetime.
4-H is recognized as one of the foremost youth organizations in the country, reaching 6.5 million youth in all 50 states. According to recent research, youth who are provided with positive adult interactions grow to become strong, confident young adults. It is the largest youth-serving program in the world. 4-H members, age 5-19, learn by doing. More than 150 projects are available to choose from, including gardening, sewing, pet care, rocketry, insects, careers, wildlife, raising large animals, cooking, robots, babysitting and much more!
