Local 4-H volunteers making a difference


April 15-21 is National Volunteer Week, and University of Illinois Extension 4-H Youth Development program wants to recognize more then 12,000 4-H adult and youth volunteers who guide and support nearly 200,000 4-H participants in Illinois.

National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities.  By working together, communities can meet challenges and accomplish goals.

Illinois 4-H volunteers are empowering and preparing youth for success as 4-H members provide service to others and their community.  Today's 4-H youth are engaged in learning activities as they are practicing skills employers want; growing and distributing food to communities in need; stewarding the natural resources; making a difference in local, state, national, and global issues; and influencing positive choices for healthy living. None of that would be possible without our volunteers.

In Crawford County there are over 75 volunteers who are inspiring youth involved in county and local 4-H club programs.  For more information about 4-H in our area, visit
