Volunteer

 
Join 4-H leaders from across Emmet County in an interactive, hands on training that will help volunteers create a fun, safe, inclusive environment for all youth. “Belonging” is identified as a basic 4-H youth need and supportive, caring adults guide youth in creating an environment that is welcoming and engaging for all. During this training, 4-H leaders will learn how to guide youth in developing a list of club or group expectations that accommodates all members, learn how to support youth with special needs, and discover resources to help them in their role as caring adults. In addition, volunteers will learn new activities to take back their clubs and groups to foster positive behavior and belonging. This training is a required statewide leader training and will be held on November 11, at 7:00PM at the First Presbyterian Church in Estherville. A benefit of participating in the face-to-face volunteer training is the interaction and sharing with other volunteers. If you are not able to attend the training, contact the Extension office to learn more about other training options.
4-H VOLUNTEERS - Interested in becoing a 4-H volunteer?
We need to meet our potential volunteers before we can send them out to serve the youth in Emmet County.  You will need to schedule a time to come and meet with our 4-H staff at the Extension Office.  At this meeting we will answer all of your questions, provide you with the necessary materials to do your job, and acquaint you with our office.  Our Coordinator is just a phone call or e-mail away.
