The Yadkin County 4-H program is providing opportunities for youth to gain “hands on experience” in volunteering to help those in need.


In a recent study by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (Circle), the volunteering rate for youth has continually decreased the last five years.


North Carolina is in the bottom five states for youth volunteering with only 18% of youth ages 16-18 participating in volunteer opportunities. Research has also indicated youth who volunteer are more likely to volunteer as adults.


4-H provides many opportunities for youth to volunteer. Our organization is driven by volunteers both adults and youth. Notable trends in a study conducted by Tufts University found 4-H youth are 3.3 times more likely to actively contribute to their community.


4-Hers are leading a “Revolution of Responsibility” a movement for positive change in all communities across our country. This effort is evident in our Yadkin County 4-H program. They continue to “make the best better” in all they do.


This month 4-H has focused on community service. Youth wrote 200 military mail letters, delivered Thanksgiving meals, and baked Christmas cookies to be given to needy families. Additionally they have made baby blankets for a local organization, sewed magic sleeves for hospitals, made Christmas stockings for a local group home and will shop for Angel Tree youth.


The youth are joining the “Revolution of Responsibility” helping to make positive changes in our local community.
