“Volunteer 4
Youth”

The Currituck Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development program has a goal of engaging more of the county’s youth population in life skill development over the next three years. To reach this goal, 4-H is seeking caring volunteers to join us in supporting Currituck’s 4-H youth. 4-H is the largest youth development program in the state, with a long history of providing enjoyable and meaningful educational opportunities that can become the foundation for a lifetime of success. Across the state, 4-H programs provide young people with opportunities to explore new interests, gain new knowledge, enhance their expertise and discover their passion while teaching valuable life skills that prepare them for the future. Available to young people between ages 5 and 19, 4-H programs offer real-world learning experiences and leadership opportunities that enhance a young person’s educational success and inspire community engagement. With more than 240,000 4-H members across the state, none of this would be possible without the help of volunteers who have a passion for educating and encouraging today’s youth. These volunteers are the core of a successful 4-H model; they provide guidance for 4-H members and serve as positive adult role models for the youth with whom they interact. These same volunteers help 4-H members learn critical life skills and direct youth toward a future as engaged and contributing members of our state. Helping build leadership potential in our young people is a win for all. Expected to launch in early January, the Currituck 4-H campaign, “Volunteer 4 Youth” has the goals of informing citizens about the ways adults can volunteer with 4-H and recruiting 100 new volunteers by the end of the year. Key components of the campaign efforts include: recruitment videos, open house for citizens, social media ads, news articles and radio spots. Businesses who would like to support this campaign should contact the local 4-H Agent. Keep an eye out for campaign materials coming to your community, and don’t hesitate to get involved yourself! For more information about becoming a volunteer or Currituck 4-H in general, visit http://currituck.ces.ncsu.edu.
