2020 Miami County 4-H Volunteer Application Information

Individuals applying to become a new Miami County 4-H Volunteer in 2020 must successfully complete all phases of the Ohio 4-H Volunteer Application process.  This process consists of submitting a completed application, signing and submitting the Standards of Behavior, successfully undergoing a fingerprint background check, taking part in a personal interview, having three references submitted (not related to you), and completing New 4-H Volunteer Orientation (which includes Policy 1.50 training).  Those interested in working with Cloverbuds (4-H members in grades K-2) must also complete Cloverbud Volunteer Orientation.  In order to allow ample time for processing, completed applications are due to O.S.U. Extension, Miami County by March 9.  All phases of the application process must be completed by March 27, in order for a new volunteer to be eligible to serve during 2020.
