Volunteers are the heart of the North Carolina 4-H program. Their energy and commitment create positive opportunities for young people across the state everyday, and without their consistent, dedicated service, many of the 4-H programs available would simply not exist. The North Carolina 4-H Volunteer Leaders’ Association annually sponsors a statewide volunteer recognition program to formally acknowledge the excellent work of these individuals who give their time, talents and resources in support of the youth participating in North Carolina 4-H programs. Volunteers may be nominated by 4-H agents, 4-H members, other volunteers, parents of members, or individuals may nominate themselves.
