FAIRFIELD COUNTY — As South Carolina 4-H gears up for the 4-H Volunteer Leader Symposium at Benedict College, the call is going out for new adult volunteers.
4-H volunteers are instrumental in inspiring the next generation. 4-H programs rely on volunteers to help young people learn the skills needed to master life’s challenges and to prepare for careers in the 21st century, all while having fun.
Volunteers decide their level of involvement based on skills and time available. Volunteers can lead youth within school-based, after-school or community clubs; work with other adults to create fun, new programs or develop community service opportunities for youth.
Volunteers can also share vocational expertise and talents by leading a project based club.
Contact the Fairfield County 4-H at 803-635-4722 ext.112 or send an email to email@example.com to become a 4H volunteer or for more information on the 4H Volunteer Leader Symposium on Aug. 8.
All adult volunteers working directly with 4-H youth in South Carolina must complete a background screening and receive training at no cost.
