We have several opportunities currently open for adults to volunteer to support Larimer County youth through 4-H programming! 

These roles are a partnership with Katie Daywalker, the 4-H Youth Development & Leadership Agent. The amount of time & energy required is flexible depending on your availability. If you have any interest in supporting these projects, please reach out to Katie to discuss how you can share your time and expertise with our 4-H youth!

  • Beekeeping Key Leader:  The 4-H Beekeeping Project helps youth learn about bees and how to be a beekeeper. Beekeeping offers many hands-on educational experiences, from learning about bees and nectar to learning to raise bees and produce honey. Level 1 covers “Understanding the Honeybee” and learning basic facts about beekeeping. Level 2 covers “Working with Honeybees” and walks youth through setting up their first hive and caring for it through the first year. Level 3 covers “Advanced Beekeeping Methods.” Youth do not need bees or access to hives to participate in Level 1, but do in Levels 2 and 3.

If you have another skill or talent you’d like to offer our 4-H members, please reach out to Katie Daywalker at
