Volunteer to Make a Difference

True Leaders aren't born they're grown

Our volunteers are a key part of the 4-H Youth Development Program. By volunteering, you are helping to grow the skills of 4-H youth to be our future leaders.  

Sacramento County's 4-H program has a wide range of volunteer opportunities and welcomes community members to share their skills, interests and time.

In 4-H you'll find:

  • short and long-term jobs
  • volunteer opportunities for youth
  • management as well as program positions
  • training and support for your role

We rely on volunteers in all aspects of our program.  The experience offers satisfaction, the opportunity to meet and work with others, the change to grow your skills, and fun.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact sacramento4h@ucanr.edu.  We can match you with a program that most interests you and get set up to attend an upcoming New Volunteer Orientation.

4-H Club Program

The 4-H Club program is the oldest and most established of our delivery methods.  4-H Community Clubs are found throughout the county and offer the opportunity for hands-on learning for children ages 5 to 19.

4-H Volunteers are needed to lead 4-H projects in an area of interest.  We also need volunteers to help with 4-H Club Leader administrative tasks.

4-H YES Program

4-H Youth Experiences in Science (YES) Program

The 4-H YES curriculum is designed to foster inquiry and engage children ages 5 to 8 in the process of exploration. A cross-age teaching model engages teenage volunteers as teachers.  After attending a 10-hour training session (equipped with 4-H YES curriculum and adult coaches), the teens work in teams to prepare and deliver the weekly science activities.  We have volunteer openings for both teens as teachers and adult coaches.
