Volunteers are essential to the successful implementation of the 4-H program. All registered adult 4-H volunteers working directly with 4-H youth in New Jersey complete a screening process and receive training at no cost to themselves. Teens may also serve in volunteer roles through the 4-H Teen Leadership project.

Volunteers can serve in a variety of roles, including the following:

  • 4-H Club Leaders
  • School Age Child Care Providers
  • Teachers
  • Project Judges
  • Community Resource Persons
  • Camp Counselors
  • Parent Helpers
  • Advisory Council Members
  • Foundation Members/Fund-Raisers
  • Fair Board Members
  • Mentors

Please contact your county office for more information on these rewarding opportunities!
