Become a 4-H Leader and “Make the Best Better!”

Clay County 4-H is looking for Volunteer Leaders!  Volunteers are the backbone of 4-H.  With training, they provide leadership to 4-H programs.  Volunteer leaders include parents, teachers, community leaders, and others who share their time and talents to help youth cope with the issues and demands of today’s society and prepare them to become responsible citizens and tomorrow’s leaders.  If you are interested in learning how to become a 4-H Leader, or volunteering with 4-H in any capacity, please contact the Clay County 4-H Office at (904) 269-6355, (904) 284-6355 or e-mail Jackie Schrader, 4-H Agent at
