University of Illinois Extension 4-H Youth Development takes great pride in the quality of its adult leadership. Being a registered volunteer in 4-H is a true privilege. The quality of the 4-H program and the safety of our youth members requires that the selection of volunteers be taken seriously and that our organization works to recruit the very best. As the backbone of the 4-H program, volunteers are organizers, teachers, and counselors. Positive youth development research shows the importance of caring adults in the lives of young people.
