Volunteers are truly the backbone of the 4-H program. If you are interested in volunteering with the Brevard County 4-H program, please review the steps below and reach out to Andrea Lazzari, 4-H Agent, at (321) 633-1702 or a.lazzari11@ufl.edu to get started. 

HOW TO BECOME A 4-H VOLUNTEER

Check out these easy steps to learn how to become a 4-H volunteer. There are many roles a 4-H volunteer can fill, including Club Leader, Club Co-Leader, SPIN Club Leader, Horse Program Volunteer, Mentor, Advisory Committee Member, and more.  Contact your 4-H Agent for more information, and to get started on the volunteer application process.

  1. Decide that you want to help kids grow and explore their futures.
  2. Contact your County 4-H Agent to learn about volunteer opportunities in your county.
  3. Enroll as a 4-H volunteer through our 4HOnline enrollment system. 
  4. Complete the annual OYCS Youth Protection Training. This can be found under "Trainings" in your 4HOnline profile. There is a quiz you must pass to move on to the next step, but you can take it as many times as necessary.  
  5. Contact your County 4-H Agent to set up a time for a volunteer interview. This can be done in person, over Zoom, or on the phone. You will also submit two references at this time. 
  6. Upon completion of your interview and reference checks, the State 4-H Volunteer Coordinator will reach out to you to schedule your fingerprinting session. This will be done at a location convenient to you. 
  7. Attend your scheduled fingerprinting appointment, and anxiously await your eligibility status from the 4-H Agent.
  8. Prepare to share your skills, knowledge, and talents while having fun with kids!
  9. Attend county volunteer orientations and trainings throughout the year to better meet the needs of youth.
