Alabama 4-H volunteer outdoors with 4-H member monitoring water quality

Thank you for offering to help young people grow and learn. Your involvement is important to 4-H and our young people.

This application is important to you and 4-H for the following reasons:

  • It matches you with the right job and responsibilities
  • It assures that 4-H provides a safe and nurturing environment
  • It protects you and everyone involved in 4-H

The volunteer application has two sections:

General Information—used to match your skills, interests, and abilities with 4-H’s volunteer needs.

Personal Information—confidential information will only be accessible to authorized Extension personnel. This confidential information will be kept in a locked and secured location in your county Extension office.

Provide the requested information and return the application to your Extension office. Note that your signature is required.

Background Screening

Auburn University and ACES is committed to ensuring that a safe and supportive environment exists for all staff, volunteers and students participating in programs. With this understanding, Auburn University recognizes both its institutional and legal obligation to ensure the safety and well-being of all individuals—but especially minor children that utilize university facilities, participate in university-sponsored events and programs, or are involved with university-affiliated individuals.

All potential 4-H volunteers must contact their local county 4-H office to begin the volunteer screening process. Background screening is administered by Auburn University Human Resources through Truescreen.

Your participation in providing these services is integral to our mission of creating and disseminating knowledge for the betterment of society. We deeply appreciate your compliance with our background screening process. All submitted information will be handled with the strictest confidence.

Potential 4-H volunteers are not cleared to serve until all the screening steps have been completed, a clearance communication from Auburn University Human Resources has been received, and all required training has been completed.
