Kansas 4-H invites you to make the difference in the life of a young person. Volunteers make 4-H possible through the passion, skills, and talents they share with young people. 4-H Volunteers are screened and receive ongoing training. Assisted by local staff, they guide youth learning using research-backed curriculum.
All individuals who work directly with youth are required to complete the Kansas 4-H volunteer screening process. Volunteer screening is done in order to assure a safe, positive, and nurturing environment for all youth involved with the Kansas 4-H programs and provide protection for the child, the volunteer, the agent, the Extension Board, and the Kansas State Research and Extension.
Updating the 4-H Volunteer Enrollment Process
Beginning in the 2019-2020 4-H program year, the 4-H Volunteer process has been streamlined. When 4-H Volunteers enroll through 4HOnline the process will take the place of what once was the volunteer application and then re-enrollment forms. Once volunteers enter their information in the system, they will simply have to reenroll each year, the same way youth currently do through 4HOnline. For a step by step tutorial please visit the 4HOnline Family Resources page and view the “Enrollment Guide for Volunteers”.
