4-H Volunteers are the backbone of the 4‑H program. Our volunteers provide the guidance and support that helps nearly 200 4‑H members ages 5-18 in Yancey County. These volunteers spend numerous hours working on tasks, such as assisting with 4‑H events; organizing club activities; coordinating special interest programs; conducting workshops and events; helping children with 4‑H projects; or leading a community service project. For National Volunteer Week, April 17-23, 2022, we would like to highlight all of the Yancey County 4-H volunteers that make a difference in the lives of youth in Yancey County.

Yancey County 4-H currently has 17 volunteers who help make our program possible. Shane Hilliard, Gerald Barnett, Joe Pate, Clay Carroll, Jeff Fox, Mark Geouge, Levi Johnson and Coty Pate are our Longshots Shooting Sports Club volunteers. Connie McMahan and Reba Mathis are our Sewing Club volunteers. Kimberly Montgomery is our Arts & Crafts Club volunteer. Lynn Austin and April McCurry are our Beef Club volunteers. Amber Hammond is our Livestock Club volunteer. Kevin Gantt and Leigh Davis are our Outdoor Adventures Club volunteers. Abigail Varney and Kevin Gantt are our Electric Group volunteers. Without the selfless work of these volunteers, all of these programs would not be possible! The work of 4‑H volunteers is continuous. Everyday a volunteer is lending a helping hand to provide learning opportunities for the 4‑H members involved in the Yancey County 4‑H Program. Thank you for stepping up, saying yes and making such a difference in so many lives. We appreciate YOU!

Yancey County 4-H is always seeking volunteers to help expand the 4-H program to reach more youth in Yancey County. There are many different ways to help support the 4-H program, regardless of whether you have children enrolled in 4-H or not. You do not need previous experience with 4-H to volunteer. There are opportunities to work directly with children, or work ‘behind the scenes’ with 4-H programs. It all depends on your interest and talents.
