We Need Volunteers!

4-H Youth Development is a great organization that prides itself on adult-youth mentoring. Hood River County has about 70 adult volunteers each year that help mentor kids. Being a 4-H volunteer provides an opportunity for adults to share their expertise and skills with kids as well as act as a mentor. From livestock and home environment to science and art, we need adult volunteers!

4-H offers several different types of volunteer roles that allow for different levels of commitment:

  • Club Contact/Project Leader– organize club structure; plan/design club meetings; distribute information; provide opportunities in project areas; and help run county wide 4-H events. Start a club in your neighborhood!
  • Resource Leader– help facilitate county wide activities; assist clubs with educational programs; design educational events around areas of interest; actively participate in advisory committees specific to project areas of interest; no transportation responsibilities. Share your expertise with the county and existing clubs!
  • Special Activity Volunteer– organize/plan and supervise youth at special 4-H events. Help 4-H put on an event!

Volunteer and show the kids you care!


The first step to volunteering is to attend a new leader training. We have two training coming up:

  • Thursday, December 4th at 5:30pm
