Leading the Way: The next century of 4-H

Nash County 4-H Needs You!

Volunteers are the key to success in the Nash County 4-H program. Whether you’re interested in starting a club and becoming a club leader or just have a few hours to invest in upcoming 4-H programs, we have challenging and fun jobs for adults and teens who want to make a difference. Here’s a list of current Nash County 4-H Clubs.

4-H Empowers Youth With the
Skills to Lead for a Lifetime

In 4‑H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. Through non-formal, research-based, and hands-on educational activities, 4-H participants gain knowledge and life skills enabling them to become positive, productive, capable, and compassionate members of their communities. 4-H provides opportunities for youth ages 5-18 years old.

Become a 4-H Volunteer Today!

4-H Online Volunteer Enrollment

Please Note: All 4-H volunteers who work directly with youth in any unsupervised capacity (i.e., club leaders chaperones, etc.) are required to complete and pass a background check and have a current Volunteer Application on file with their local 4-H office.

Virtual Volunteer Training Series

North Carolina 4-H will be hosting a bimonthly virtual volunteer training series for all 4-H volunteers. All registration will be done through 4-H Online and sessions will be held over Zoom. In order to participate in these sessions, participants are expected to have a computer camera (with the camera turned on) and a microphone. If a participant does not have this capability, please reach out and we will chat.

After each session, those that attend the entire session and participate, will receive a link to a session quiz. If the quiz is taken within a week and the participant scores a 90% or higher they will receive an electronic certificate of training completion for their volunteer record. If a volunteer successfully completes all 6 trainings (including the quizzes), they will receive a mailed certificate, a 4-H volunteer nametag and other items they can use in their work as a 4-H volunteer. The 6 sessions which will be offered are some of the 4-H foundation topics that all volunteers need to know.

Virtual Volunteer Training Calendar Download

These trainings are free of charge and open to all NC 4-H Volunteers. Each session is entered as a different “event” in 4-H Online. Registration will close 7 days prior to the session date and a specific Zoom link will be sent for each session to all registered participants.

I hope you will register and take advantage of this training opportunity!
