Volunteer With 4-H

4-H Volunteers

Buncombe County 4-H Needs You!

Volunteers are the key to success in the Buncombe 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.

4-H Volunteers Empower 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 the efforts of our 4-H volunteers, 4-H participants gain knowledge and life skills enabling them to become positive, productive, capable, and compassionate members of their communities. YOU TOO can make a difference in the life of a young person.

Are you interested in volunteering but need ideas for programming? Check out the 4-H Activity Guide!
