Get involved in Lake County 4-H
4-H Club Organizational Leader
A 4-H Club Organizational Leader is an adult volunteer that is in charge of a 4-H community, after-school, or in-school club. A 4-H club consists of five or more kids with two volunteer leaders, the clubs members include anyone from the county. These clubs meet throughout the year and provide a community-based structure for developing youth ages 5-18. The organizational leader assists the club’s members in planning the program, conducting clubs business, and assisting members with 4-H projects. The 4-H agent will assist with the volunteer application and screening process, volunteer training and orientation, and provide access to resources.
4-H Club Project Leader
The 4-H project leader helps the organizational leader teach the educational component of the club program. Project leaders organize and teach project specific lessons. They help 4-H members complete project record books and prepare for the fair.
Volunteer for an Event or Activity
There are many events that run solely off of volunteers. 4-H camp and day camps are always in need of volunteers to help with youth management or providing assistance to teach a particular topic. Volunteers are also needed to make sure adequate supervision is provided at events like 4-H horse shows, parties, and local events in the community.
4-H allows members to demonstrate their projects in many areas that require judging. County Events Day, Share-the-Fun, Tropicana and the Lake County Fair all require judges to provide valuable critique on projects, speeches, demonstrations, and other activities. Judges also encourage 4-H members to keep making improvements in their projects.
Lake County 4-H Association and Foundation Members
