Enrollment Process for New Adults (age 18 and older)
Adult volunteers may enroll starting July 1st and any time during the program year.
Each prospective volunteer must complete the four phases of the enrollment process before they will be allowed to work with 4-H youth. Once you have completed the phases and are confirmed in the 4hOnline enrollment system we will then mail you your 4-H Leader Card.
Prospective Volunteers may not lead projects or represent the 4-H Youth Development Program in any manner until they receive their 4-H Leader Card.
Phases 1, 2, 3 and 4 require Internet access. If you do not have Internet access, please Niki Chiunti, 4-H Program Representative to schedule a time to use the computer and Internet in the 4-H Office.
