Help Grow True Leaders | Volunteer with NH 4-H!

Welcome to the world of volunteering with New Hampshire 4-H!

We have a wide variety of ways for you to engage with youth and families in your local communities and beyond. Whether you are looking for the occasional opportunity or an extensive commitment, your impact will be long lasting for New Hampshire youth and families.

Begin your 4-H volunteer experience with a taste of what 4-H is all about! These episodic volunteer experiences do not require extensive training, and they can be great way to learn more about 4-H.

4-H Event Judge
From the county fair to 4-H food shows to communication events, 4-H has several activities where youth benefit from positive adult feedback. You don’t have to be a content specialist; you just need a passion for helping youth reach their potential.

4-H Event Support
Each county has different events throughout the year like fundraisers, fairs and food shows that require assistance; we are always looking for a positive attitude and someone willing to lend a helping hand!

Ready to partner with 4-H to help kids build skills and explore events and retreats? We have an array of experiences that provide a deeper level of engagement and will come with onboarding support from county staff.

4-H Special Interest (SPIN) Facilitator
Each county offers programs along content pathways to build mastery of skills while engaging youth in the larger 4-H community. We are always looking for volunteers skilled in a specific area of interest to lead workshops for youth. Some examples include baking, computer coding, sewing, gardening and hiking. As the facilitator you create the experience, establish the schedule and lead the fun!

4-H Chaperone
New Hampshire 4-H hosts three annual events in which we bring youth together to learn and grow—a fall trip to Eastern States Exposition, a winter tween and teen retreat and a summer teen leadership conference. These immersive learning opportunities equip young adults with confidence while building friendships among 4-H youth and volunteers from across the state.

4-H Club Volunteer
Support for clubs can range from supporting volunteers who assist with meeting details and learning experiences to adult leaders who fully orchestrate events. Clubs meet from October to August and project areas include STEM, Animal Sciences, Healthy Living, Horticulture and Civic Engagement.

4-H Event Core Volunteer
Every county hosts a multitude of experiences for the youth and families of their counties throughout the year like holiday crafting, recognition evenings and food shows. These events require the help of volunteers who regularly assist in areas such as set-up, outreach and registration.

4-H Mentor
4-H mentors are more than advisors; they are role models, educators, life coaches and friends to the 4-H youth in their communities. This mentorship provides the opportunity for adults to connect with youth in a long-term learning experience.
