VOLUNTEER

For the Georgia 4-H Foundation...

The Georgia 4-H Foundation relies heavily on the efforts of volunteers to help coordinate and organize yearly alumni & friends events. If you are interested in serving as a volunteer or in a leadership role for the 2016-2017 Alumni & Friends events or for the 2017 Georgia 4-H Gala, please contact Mary Ann Parsons at parsonsm@uga.edu.

 

 In 1904, when Mr. G.C. Adams began the corn club in Newton County, he joined the long list of volunteers who have made a difference in the community.  Mr. Adams saw an opportunity to improve his students and sought resources to make it happen.  Today’s volunteers are much like Mr. Adams. Volunteers support, assist, develop, acquire, chaperone and deliver for Georgia 4-H.
