Volunteers are essential to the success of the 4-H program. All registered adult 4-H volunteers working directly with 4-H youth in South Carolina complete a screening process and receive training at no cost to themselves. Teens may also serve in volunteer roles through the 4-H Teen Leadership project.


Volunteers are the key to providing 4-H programs for youth. Capable, interested adult volunteers are always needed to lead clubs and to assist with 4-H activities.

Orientation is provided, so no previous experience is necessary. 4-H volunteers are supported by Clemson Extension staff, including a county 4-H agent who is a faculty member of Clemson University.

Club leaders facilitate the scheduling of club meetings. You set t the date, time, and location.

Club leaders encourage children to try new things, develop knowledge of 4-H topics, and become active in the community

Club Leaders submit 4-H paperwork at the start and end of each Club year.

What is a 4-H club?

4-H clubs are the foundation of the 4-H program. A 4-H club is a group of five or more youngsters guided by one or more adult volunteer leaders. A club can be any size from a small group of kids from one neighborhood to a larger club consisting of youth from all over the county. Clubs meet for a minimum of 6 hours a project.

What happens in a 4-H club?

A 4-H club usually concentrates on one or more projects such as gardening, woodworking, small animals, food and nutrition, photography, STEM, etc. 4-H members build leadership by electing officers and conducting their own business meetings; work together on community service activities; meet new friends; and most important, have lots of fun.
