Southwind District


Southwind District and Kansas 4-H invites you to make the difference in the life of a young person. Volunteers make 4-H possible through the passion, skills, and talents they share with young people.  4-H Volunteers are screened and receive ongoing training. Assisted by local staff, they guide youth learning using research-backed curriculum.

Are you curious about volunteering for 4-H? Watch one of our orientation video - How Will You Inspire the Next Generation?

Please visit with Extension staff in your county office about volunteer opportunities!

4-H volunteers make their communities a better place.  In a recent survey when asked "What has been your most significant 4-H volunteer experience?" Kansas 4-H volunteers shared:

"Being club leader ... it is great to work with a variety of youth and watch them grow individually and as a group. I have also loved getting more involved in the community because of 4-H opportunities."


"Watching the kids in my 4-H Club grow and mature. There is just no other organization that allows for the mentoring of youth by older youth as well as 4-H does. I so love watching kids that I think 'oh my' in their junior high years become awesome leaders in senior high and see how the younger members look up to them."

"Developing life-long friendships throughout our county and extension district. Also, the feeling of "belonging" through participating in 4-H."

"Seeing the excitement in the kids when they are involved and enjoy what they are doing"
