It’s National Volunteer Week! This week, we thank Ohio’s volunteers, particularly Ohio and Fulton County 4-H volunteers, and celebrate the impact of volunteer service to tackle Ohio’s greatest challenges, building stronger, more vibrant communities.
Since 1902, 4-H volunteers have helped inspire curiosity, build lifelong skills, fuel adventure and grow leaders. Volunteers have the knowledge, experience, and skills that help youth thrive!
Ready to get started?
To become a 4-H volunteer, you will be invited to special training meetings and will receive information and other written materials to help you learn your responsibilities as a volunteer. Your County Extension Educator and current volunteers will mentor you, too. Being an Ohio 4-H volunteer is a great way to give back; it is also a privilege and responsibility. You can begin the process by reading our volunteer standards of behavior, and completing the application during the Fulton County 4-H program’s acceptance window–November 1-December 31 of current year at https://go.osu.edu/fultonvolunteerapp.
