ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The 4-H mission says “4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential through youth-adult partnerships and research-based experiences.”

4-H in Washington County cannot be what it is today without the many different types of volunteers.

The 4-H Youth Committee is one type of volunteer position. This 18-member adult group meets monthly to review and plan 4-H and youth events for the county.

Although it is not a requirement, members often were 4-H members themselves and want to stay involved as adults.

“4-H was a vital part of my life growing up, and I had many great experiences that helped me become who I am today,” Jodi Ebert said about her time on the Youth Committee. “I want give that same opportunity to current 4-Hers and make sure they have the most positive 4-H experience they can. Being involved with Youth Committee allows me to have a voice and play an active role in 4-H today as an adult.”

This group is invaluable to the 4-H program as they are often the key people at events to help with registrations, set up, meal preparation, timekeeping and supervision of groups.
