4-H Volunteers Needed in Butler County

Feb 19, 2016

Currently, 4-H is looking for volunteers to lead summer programs from June-August in the following areas: cake decorating, beekeeping, horses, outdoor adventures, veterinary science and woodworking. Although we are looking for volunteers in these areas there is always room for other options! Plus, you do not have to be an expert to be a volunteer. 4-H has all the resources you could need!
4-H is the largest out-of-school youth organization in the world, and is open to all boys and girls, ages 5 to18. Children ages 5 to 7 years old (by Dec. 2015) are eligible for 4-H Clover Kids. Youth who are 5 to 18 years of age (by Dec. 2015) can choose from a variety of 4-H skills such as public speaking, social interaction, decision making, and nutrition, fitness, and much more.

Clubs in Butler County have grown in the last few years from one club to now six clubs. In Butler County four clubs are open for enrollment all year long. Clubs are distributed throughout the county with clubs in Neelyville, Rombauer, Poplar Bluff, Fisk and Qulin.
