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"
