Mentors are the foundation of our youth’s success! Become a Mentor for a 4-H’er and watch the confidence of a young person bloom as you help them achieve their 4-H dreams and develop skills for a lifetime!

Project Achievement is a core 4-H program that is essential to the development of our youth’s skills in leadership, creativity, public speaking, and more. Mentors will guide students as they research, write, and present a project of their interest to a board of judges. We need mentors who can provide the assistance necessary to advance our 4-H’ers minds, skills, and talents so they may successfully present a project they are proud of!

“My 4-H Mentor is my county agent, Mrs. Teresa Chauncey. Mrs. Teresa has always pushed me to be the best I can be, and she’s encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and pursue my goals, while doing whatever she can to help me achieve them. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her, and I am so thankful for the impact she’s made on my life!”

– Lindsey Steedley

4-H Mentors Will…

Provide 4-H students with a positive learning environment where students will learn by doing as they cultivate the confidence, knowledge, and skills necessary to master their Project Achievement Presentations. Mentors are an integral part of the youth development process; our 4-H mentors will help youth (grades 9-12) foster a relationship for positive change and make the connections necessary for sharpening their life skills for Project Achievement and beyond into their future professional opportunities.
Georgia 4-H is seeking volunteers who are positive, dependable, enthusiastic, and encouraging. Mentors must relate well to youth and possess the communicative ability to guide their 4-H’er towards success with their Project Achievement presentation.

Preferred Skills:

  • Completion of a high school level English course is needed.
  • Prior experience in the Project Achievement process is desired.
