Volunteer with Marion County 4-H!


Do you want a rewarding and fulfilling way to give back to your community?

Marion County 4-H is looking for consistent and dedicated individuals to serve as club leaders and helpers. Whether you are a 4-H newbie or a 10-year member -- we need your time and talents to make a difference in the lives of young people in Marion County!

Here are some of the ways you can participate in 4-H as a volunteer: 

  • Share your time as a leader or helper in one of our existing clubs around Marion County.
  • Create your own 4-H club and recruit new 4-Hers from your neighborhood or community to participate.
  • Teach a special skill like carpentry, cake decorating, beekeeping, or whatever you're good at to young people across the county!
