2024 Opportunities

  • Become a 4-H Adult Volunteer - Club Advisors needed!
    • Applications, background check AND References are due to the OSU Extension Office by February 1st. Application available at go.osu.edu/fcvolunteer. New Volunteer Training will take place online through an online course system and must be completed by April 15th. Advisors are needed to support members across the entire county. There are a few clubs that need additional help so potential volunteers can ‘learn the ropes’ and not have the responsibility to take on the entire club or a new club. Contact our office at 740-653-5419 to learn more!
  • Save the Date - 4-H Day Open House - Saturday, March 2, 2024
    • New 4-H families who need assistance with choosing projects and/or clubs are invited to attend 4-H Day on Saturday, March 2nd from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the AAA Building at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds. We ask that all prospective 4-H families complete our 4-H interest survey to pre-register for the event. This will assist us with club placement tracking on the day of the event. 4-H members will be set up with various 4-H project displays to share their experiences in the program. Additionally, 4-H advisors will be attending to assist with answering any questions and club placement. For more information, visit: u.osu.edu/fairfield4h/join4h
