    Why volunteer?[BROKEN LINK]

    • 4-H is fun!
    • Most people volunteer for 4-H because they enjoy working with youth.
    • To make a positive contribution to youth and to your community.
    • So that a young person's future can be shaped in the positive environment of 4-H, recognizing that young people are the future.
    • To obtain training from USU Extension in youth and leadership development.
    • For your personal development in skill areas pertaining to projects, leadership, teaching, and organization.

    A parent's role in 4-H[BROKEN LINK]

    Your child needs your encouragement to get them started in 4-H and to keep them involved in the program through their teen years. You can help if you:
    • Share: Take interest, look, listen and offer suggestions, but avoid the temptation to “take over” and do things yourself.
    • Prepare: Help your child value having their projects, duties, and presentations done right and on time.
    • Be There: Parents are part of 4-H, too. You are welcome and very needed. Stay for staff-led events, lend a hand where you can, and volunteer.
    • Care: Support your child’s participation and abide by the policies set by the 4-H Youth Development Program.
