As of August 2020, if you are an Adult Volunteer returning to 4-H, here is an overview of the process:

  1. Re-enroll at 4HOnline.
  2. Complete the 2020-2021 training for returning volunteers.
  3. Give a copy of medical form from 4HOnline to club leader and sign Member Agreement.
  4. Pay volunteer dues (25$) or email Kris for a fee waiver.
  5. Read and take the survey regarding COVID-19 for 4-H In-Person Activity
  6. Get approved as a 4-H Volunteer. The County Director reviews and approves 4-H volunteer appointments after all the application requirements and mandatory trainings are completed. If approved notification of your 4-H adult volunteer appointment will be sent from 4HOnline. Keep this email as proof that your are a Certified 4-H Leader. If there are any limitations on the appointment a subsequent letter will be sent from the county director. If not approved a letter will be sent to the applicant from the county director.
