Volunteer & Support

Why Volunteer?
Volunteer leaders are a crucial part of the growth and execution of our programs. Our leaders have the opportunity to assist in a variety of ways.  Volunteer leaders must be at least 18 years of age, agree to be properly trained, and if selected, abide by the Georgia Volunteer Guidelines.

How to Get Involved

All volunteers are asked to complete an application and go through a screening process.  This application and process has been created to protect the volunteers and all the people that are involved.

Supervising is defined as an adult who directs a youth’s (other than their personal child’s) behavior during an activity or event.  All adults with supervisory roles must be screened. UGA Cooperative Extension employees have been screened through the employment process.  See Volunteer Types for explanation of various levels of certification and screening.  To start the volunteer process contact the Clayton County Extension Office.

Program Volunteer Needed

We always have needs for volunteers to lead and support our extension programming. Volunteers are also encouraged to lead specialty clubs in which they have expertise or personal interest (examples: archery, tending horses, cooking, crafting, career fields, gardening, public service officials, etc.). For more information on how to become involved as a volunteer, please contact any of the 4-H Staff.
