Support for 4-H Volunteer Training



The 4-H Youth Development Program supports the training and development of 4-H volunteers. While 4-H volunteers are encouraged to attend workshops and conferences that 4-H offers, the 4-H program can’t provide all of the training needed by volunteers. 

To support volunteers in obtaining the training they need to improve in their volunteer roles or obtain needed certifications (such as ServSafe which is required for volunteers running food booths) funds are available for partial reimbursement. These funds are generously provided by the 4-H Foundation and administered by the 4-H Director Sherrie Guyott. 

To apply for funding go to the Volunteer page of the 4-H website at

http://ag.umass.edu/mass4h/volunteers/for-current-ma-4-h-volunteers/e-learning-course

click on “4-H Volunteer Application for Funds to Support Workshops/Conferences/Training Sessions” and follow the instructions given.




Plymouth County 4-H needs volunteers



Why Volunteer?

People volunteer with 4-H for many reasons. One obvious benefit is to help guide and mentor our country’s future citizens and leaders. Volunteers also develop new leadership skills, meet new friends, and have great adventures.

Adult volunteers play an important role in 4-H youth education programs. They coordinate local community clubs and help to plan and conduct local, regional, state, and national 4-H events.

4-H volunteers help 4-Hers to:

  • Learn by doing
  • Develop leadership and life skills
  • Make new friends
  • Give back to the community
  • Build connections with others
  • Prepare, do, and share.
