Volunteer Training

Volunteers are truly the heart of 4-H.  Across Utah, 4-H youth are participating in many activities, clubs, and events.  Their success is due largely to the dedicated volunteers and parents who devote their time and talents to assist youth.  One of our first priorities in Utah 4-H is to ensure that our volunteers receive the help and support that they need to be successful in their efforts to serve. 

This section of our webpage is devoted to assisting volunteers-- Here you will find some wonderful resources designed to help train volunteers.  We encourage 4-H leaders, parents, volunteers, and those interested in learning more about 4-H, to explore these resources.  If you find certain resources to be particularly helpful, please let us know.

4-H Volunteer e-Learning Course - This resource is a wonderful set of interactive, online training modules that have been designed to help potential 4-H volunteers, new, current, re-entering volunteers, and others who want to learn about 4-H.  Those who take advantage of this resource will gain a better understanding of the 4-H Youth Development Program and will be better prepared to work with youth.
4-H Volunteer Leader Handbook - The 4-H Volunteer Handbook is designed as a resource for all volunteers and paid staff working with 4-H.  Please use this handbook as a quick reference for the information and forms you may need.
