Virginia Cooperative Extension relies on volunteers to accomplish its mission. We believe that active citizen involvement in our programs makes a difference in our success. The work of volunteers at the local level helps us leverage our paid faculty and staff resources into a much greater impact for the people of Virginia.

There are many ways you can get involved with us. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss available opportunities.

Volunteer opportunities in Chesterfield County include:

  • 4-H 
    • adult leaders for community 4-H clubs
    • adult and teen volunteers for summer camp at Jamestown 4-H center
    • one time volunteer opportunities with community groups
    • serve on the Extension Leadership Council (need teen & adult representatives) 
  • Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR)
  • Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) 
    • financial education volunteers
    • food safety volunteers
