The 4-H Incredible Exchange

What is The 4-H Incredible Exchange?

The 4-H Incredible Exchange is a summer volunteer program for youth ages 13-15. Youth volunteers in the program learn valuable job skills and contribute to their community in a meaningful way. Youth also build connections with trained adult mentors who guide them throughout their volunteer experience. After completion of 25-50 hours, youth can earn an exchange certificate redeemable for a recreational or cultural activity of their choice. Examples include ski or golf passes, art classes, dance, music, horseback riding, drivers education, and more.

Who is eligible to participate in The 4-H Incredible Exchange?

Youth who are residents of south Saint Louis County and are between the ages of 13-15 are eligible to apply.  Enrollment for The 4-H Incredible Exchange opens in January and closes on April 30. Youth must be 13-15 years old by June 1 of the program year.

Where can youth volunteer?

The 4-H Incredible Exchange partners with a variety of local non-profits. All eligible applicants will be invited to site interviews, where they can meet and interview with mentors from the different volunteer sites they are interested in.
