Adult volunteers are essential to the 4-H program. Volunteers put 4-H’s researched-based, learn-by-doing model in action. They help youth learn and practice skills such as problem solving, decision making, and communicating – skills crucial for their success in school, careers, and communities. There are approximately 300 adult volunteers that have fun while making a positive impact on the youth in Waukesha County. Would you like to join them?
Volunteers contribute their time in a variety of ways – sharing a specific skill as a project leader (like woodworking or cake decorating), leading a session at camp, or helping in the UW-Extension office. Review the wide variety of project areas Waukesha County offers to see if there is a skill set you have that you’d like to teach to youth. Contact the UW-Extension office at (262) 548-7770 to inquire about the many other opportunities available.
4-H is proud of being a proactive, youth-serving organization with an excellent reputation for providing a healthy and safe environment for its members.
