4-H Volunteers

How to Become a 4-H Volunteer?

To become an eligible 4-H volunteer, individuals must do the following:

  1. DECIDE: Decide that you want to help kids grow and explore their futures.
  2. MEET AND GREET: Email your 4-H Agent to learn about volunteer opportunities in Walton County and schedule a brief meet and greet or over the phone (your preference). Tell us more about your interests as a volunteer and learn more about 4-H.
  3. ONLINE ENROLLMENT AND TRAINING: Enroll as a 4-H volunteer through our 4-H Online Enrollment system. Complete the Youth Protection Training and take the quiz.
  4. VOLUNTEER INTERVIEW: This can be done in person, over Zoom, or on the telephone.
  5. FINGERPRINTING: Upon completion of your interview and reference checks, the State 4-H Volunteer Coordinator will schedule your fingerprinting session at no cost at a location convenient to you. Attend your fingerprinting appointment and await your eligibility status from the 4-H agent.
  6. PREPARE: Prepare to share your skills, knowledge, and talents while having fun with kids!
  7. REGULAR TRAINING: Attend county volunteer training meetings throughout the year.
