Benefits of volunteering

Volunteering with 4-H benefits the young people, the community and you -- the volunteer. 

4-H is unique

  • Youth learn how to solve problems, make decisions and communicate ideas
  • We are the largest youth organization in Minnesota
  • Our methods are backed by university research
  • All learning is project-based -- 4-H'ers learn by doing
  • Our volunteers receive ongoing training and support
