Volunteers are the key to success in the Durham County 4-H program. Whether you’re interested in starting a club or just have a few hours to invest in upcoming 4-H programs, we have challenging and fun jobs for adults who want to make a difference.

In 4‑H, we believe in the power of young people. We see that every child has valuable strengths and real influence to improve the world around us. Through non-formal, research-based, and hands-on educational activities, 4-H participants gain knowledge and life skills enabling them to become positive, productive, capable, and compassionate members of their communities. 4-H provides opportunities for youth ages 5-18 years old.

Durham 4-H Volunteer Opportunties:

  • Club Leaders: Clubs meet monthly, weekly or bi-weekly throughout the school year on different topics. Club leaders, with the support of the 4-H agent, work together to design a positive and impactful experience using meaningful curriculum, community collaboration, and youth leadership development. Have a skill you want to share? See here for a list of existing and potential Durham Clubs. 
  • Summer Camp Support: Each summer, 4-H hosts a series of different half day, full day, and overnight camps. These camps vary in age group and activity and are always more enriching when passionate adults volunteer! See summer camp listings here. 
  • School Enrichment Volunteers: Whether it’s in afterschool programs or during classroom time, 4-H curriculum is always a fun way for Durham’s students to learn! Learn more about what lessons you can be trained in teaching and join our volunteer team by email Durham’s 4-H agent.
