4-H is part of University of Missouri Extension and is publicly supported by county, state and federal governments as well as private resources, both human and financial. 4-H welcomes all Missouri youth.

As America's largest youth development organization, 4-H offers youth, families, and adult volunteers of all ages many ways to engage, grow and serve - through clubs, camps, contests, conferences, special interest groups, in-school and afterschool programs, and more! It's about young people making new friends and memories while preparing to be future leaders - from both rural and urban areas.

Volunteers will have the chance to work with clubs, camps, contests and in-school and after school programming.

Interested volunteers will need to complete the 4-H profile, complete the background check, and a one-time 4-H volunteer profile.
