Lead The 4-H Way
"I love the feeling I get knowing I've enriched a child's life while helping them learn a new and special skill for their future!" Says Bernadette Guerra, Sew What, 4-H Sewing Club leader. Adult 4-H volunteers help children learn and do amazing things every day!
4-H is a youth organization that enables kids to have fun, meet new people, build self-confidence and learn by doing cool things. 4-H serves boys and girls and is the largest youth-serving program in the world.
4-H relies on adults to guide members age 5-19, as they work on projects and participate in activities. Adult leaders are needed to share their hobbies, expertise and interests with young people. There are more than 150 projects to choose from, including fishing, wildlife, gardening, sewing, pet care, rocketry, insects, crafts, backyard poultry, cooking, babysitting and much more!
A genuine interest in youth is the only pre-requisite to become a 4-H leader. Leaders are supported by Penn State Extension with training, guidance and curriculum. Clubs are required to meet 6 times per year, but clubs may meet more often. A club consists of at least 5 children and the place and time of meetings is at the discretion of the leader. Each club requires two adult leaders who have been screened and completed background checks.
