4-H clover 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.
