''MSU Extension engages 25,000 to 30,000 volunteers during a typical year to be the engine behind our 4-H Youth Development program and our early childhood education programs. In fact, without volunteers, 4-H wouldn’t be possible.

But just as MSU Extension programs are unique because they are research-based, MSU Extension volunteers are also special. They all go through a screening process to ensure the safety of children and youth (adults, too!) who are involved in our programming. They have many opportunities for training too, from print material and videos, to online options, webinars and face-to-face workshops. The point is, our volunteers get the help they need to be effective, confident partners who make a difference in their communities.

So whether you want to pass your skills on to a new generation, give back to the community, leave a legacy or something else, invest in the future of Michigan as a 4-H volunteer. By giving your time to young people in your community, you’ll help them answer life’s little questions, achieve big dreams and prepare for a lifetime of success. For more information about volunteering with the 4-H program, visit the Volunteers page on the Michigan 4-H website.
