4-H’ers are exploring science, technology, and career fields from aerospace to zoology, and everything in between. Help a youth begin his or her journey. Whether in the arts or technology, medicine or sports, business or government, Suwannee County 4-H needs your help to provide opportunities for youth to learn and grow. No matter what your experience, your age, or the amount of time you have to give, there is a place for you in Suwannee County 4-H.
Volunteers are needed in all parts of Suwannee County for all types of activities and events. We welcome adults over the age of 18 who are committed to being a positive role model for youth.
Your life, your time
Your calendar is full. Your to-do list is jammed. You want to help, but it seems impossible to find the time. Don’t panic. You don’t have to give up your life to make a difference in the life of a young person.
We understand you have to balance many growing and important interests, commitments, and responsibilities. You can choose programs or activities that fit your schedule. You’ll be surprised how flexible Suwannee County 4-H is.
After deciding your interest and availability, you’ll meet with a 4-H/youth development team member to ensure a good fit. Training and support are provided. We’ll find a place for you.
