Volunteer Standards of Behavior – OSU Extension

Volunteer Selection and Policies

Each year, thousands of adults give their time, energy, and talents to develop and implement hands-on educational programs with youth. Volunteers serve as community club leaders, special event coordinators, chaperones, fundraisers, community advocates, and much more.

The updated Extension Volunteer Standards of Behavior summary is available on the state 4-H website, on the Learn about Volunteering page, in the Ready to Get Started? section (as of October 2022).

Volunteers also need tools and resources to strengthen their knowledge and skills to effectively lead local programs. Volunteers can find resources focusing on strengthening their 4-H clubs, organizing a recognition program, ideas on fundraising to support the program, and much, much more.

More information about all volunteer policies is available on the state 4-H website in the Volunteers section.
