Four easy steps to becoming a 4-H Volunteer
A — Applicants communicate with the county MU Extension staff about current program needs and volunteer roles. If you want to apply for a 4-H volunteer role, you should complete all steps below, B-D.
B — Background checks are done annually on every 4-H youth development volunteer applicant who works with youth outside a classroom setting on an ongoing basis.
C — Complete a 4-HOnline enrollment at http://mo.4honline.com or if you enrolled last year, you must update your existing volunteer profile annually. Other MU Extension volunteers (e.g., Master Naturalist) volunteering with youth do not enroll in 4HOnline.
- Do not set up a new or second profile! Contact your county MU Extension office if you do not remember your 4HOnline email log in so they can help you.
- You MUST select "YES" and [CONTINUE] when asked the volunteer question. This will provide you with volunteer items such as the Volunteer Code of Conduct and the new Trainings (Orientation) link.
- TIP: Be sure to select [CONTINUE] at the bottom of each page; otherwise, your profile may show up as pending.
- Send any 4HOnline questions to email@example.com and include your name and county.
D — Do the one-time 4-H volunteer orientation, if needed. This one-time requirement helps new 4-H volunteer applicants understand Missouri 4-H Program basics, including terms, organizational structure and safety strategies.
- Check with county 4-H staff on in-person training options as that is the best way to learn about 4-H and connect with your local 4-H staff.
- If you choose to do the online orientation in 4HOnline, print or refer to this optional, one page document, "Help Guide for Completing the 4-H Volunteer Orientation within the 4HOnline System".
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 573-882-3316 if you need special accommodations for participating in the online 4-H volunteer orientation.
- Attention Shooting Sports (SS) Volunteers: Effective January 1, 2016, the Friday night "General Session" during SS Leader Workshops no longer substitutes for completion of the 4-H Volunteer Orientation.
- Individuals wanting to enroll in a Shooting Sports Leader Workshop or other events must have completed steps A-D above and be an active volunteer as reflected by a staff-approved 4HOnline adult volunteer profile.
After you have completed steps A-D above, the county 4-H staff reviews your 4HOnline profile and sends it back for your corrections or accepts/activates your 4HOnline profile if you are the best match for a volunteer role in the program year.
