4-H Adult Volunteers make a difference!

4-H is an experiential learning youth education program for boys and girls ages 8-19. Its practical life skills education in science and technology, healthy lifestyles and citizenship can reach any kid … anywhere … any time through 4-H clubs, camps, after-school programs, and events.

4-H volunteers and professionals have a great deal of latitude in determining when, where and how 4-H “learn-by-doing” activities take place.

4-H is a community of young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. With the guidance of 4-H volunteers, youth:

More and more youths need the values, skills, and guidance 4-H offers. As a 4-H volunteer, you are supported by 4-H professionals through your local Cooperative Extension Service, a branch of West Virginia University.

People volunteer for 4-H for many reasons. One obvious benefit is to help guide and counsel our country’s future citizens and leaders. You’ll also grow as a person, develop new leadership skills, meet new friends, and have great adventures!

How to Volunteer


Adult volunteers are an important component of the Brooke County 4-H program. Volunteers coordinate local community clubs and help plan and conduct local, regional, state and national 4-H events. They can even camp out at our Brooke County 4-H Camp!

Across the country, more than 500,000 teen and adult volunteers share their time and talents with 4-H youth. Contact the Brooke County WVU Extension Service to learn about how to apply and receive training to be a 4-H volunteer.
