Volunteer With 4-H
Adults who assume volunteer roles within Mississippi State University Extension Service (MSU-ES) have the opportunity for a rewarding experience. It is understood that a volunteer’s role is easier to manage when expectations and responsibilities have been outlined and communicated prior to the job assignment. The success of the 4-H youth development program is attributed to its volunteers. A Registered 4-H volunteer is anyone who contributes time, energies, or talents to the 4-H program and is not paid by MSU-ES.
