NEW Volunteer Applications Available 

Adult volunteers are the backbone and are key to the success of the 4-H program! We are always looking for new caring adults who have time and expertise they would like to volunteer to the 4-H program. Adults who work directly with 4-H'ers two or more times during the year are considered volunteers.
All volunteers must complete the required OSU Extension volunteer approval process. Are YOU interested in being a 4-H Volunteer in Brown County?
Please print the New Volunteer Application packet that includes the application and all the instructions. Applications can also be requested at the Brown County Extension Office.

All application materials must be received by the OSU Extension Office by April 1, 2020.
This includes references and background checks.

New volunteers must attend a new volunteer orientation. Please note, attending a returning volunteer update does not meet the requirement for a new volunteer. Please check back here or contact the Extension Office for more information.

If a volunteer fails to attend one of the trainings or complete the online training, they WILL NOT be recognized as a volunteer in 2020. To return as a volunteer in 2021 they would be required to complete the new volunteer process. The 2020 new volunteer application is available on our website.
