It depends. Each state has its own pay scales and salaries for 4-H agents (and other Cooperative Extension personnel) that vary among states. Some factors that affect the amount of earnings include educational requirements, the cost of living in the area where an agent works, whether 4-H agents belong to a union, and whether 4-H agents are in a tenure-track position at a land-grant university.
For more information about a particular state’s 4-H agent salaries, visit its Web site where position descriptions may be posted.
