We are excited to announce Missouri 4-H Center for Youth Development is transitioning enrollment to Missouri 4HOnline. Please log on at mo.4honline.com. A link to the detailed, step-by-step instructions is included on the login screen, but we think you will find the system very easy to navigate. State dues for Missouri 4-H are $20 with the additional $5 for Howell County. Until dues have ben paid, in full, the members enrollment status will remain in pending.
If you have any questions or comments, please email/call Greg Carter at email@example.com or 417.256.2391. **Please be understanding, as local faculty and staff are still learning the system, just like YOU! .**
2015 Volunteer application process
Are you curious about volunteering for 4-H? We hope so! Missouri 4-H volunteers help youths ages 5-18 feel safe and supported to learn and lead.
There are four steps in the application process: A-B-C-D
A — Ask
Talk to your county MU Extension 4-H youth staff about 4-H program needs and volunteer roles.
B — Background check
Applicants fill out a volunteer form, LG639 and also a confidentiality agreement HERE PLEASE mail completed forms to the Howell County Extension Office, 1376 Bill Virdon Blvd. West Plains, MO 65775
All volunteer applicants are screened annually for child abuse and neglect as well as national criminal charges.
Annual screenings are done prior to a volunteer's individual work with any youth. The state 4-H office sends a screening postcard to volunteer applicants once the annual check is done. Your unique customer ID will be listed on the front of the approval postcard. Keep the postcard if you plan on doing the orientation online.
C — Complete the one time volunteer orientation
We believe that in-person trainings are the best! If you cannot attend an in-person training, there are two options.
- Online (done in one sitting and typically takes 15-30 minutes)
- Print (downloadable PDF files)
Your orientation is documented by completion of a brief Feedback Form.
Note: You will need to enter the Customer ID number that was listed on the front of your screening approval postcard.
D — Document
Set up your full contact and health information and desired volunteer role by setting up your adult member profile in the new 4HOnline enrollment system. County staff will review and give final approvals for volunteer service, based on the best match between 4-H volunteer applicants and current program needs.
