Annual Training for Current & New 4-H Volunteers
Volunteers who are club, project, or Clover Kid lead or assistant lead volunteers are required to attend an annual training that strengthens their positive youth development knowledge and skills. This training occurs in each county and is designated as the annual training module. The training is offered in three different formats: face to face, online, and DVD are the formats offered.
Keokuk County will be hosting a county 4-H Leader's training on September 26 at 5:30. Please RSVP to Shelly Koehn by phone at 641-622-2680 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Training for New Volunteers (Great for current volunteers too!!)
County based volunteer orientation and training is crucial to volunteers being successful in their “home” counties. Each county has some unique aspects of the 4-H program that volunteers need to learn about. County Extension staff, Youth Committee members, experienced volunteers, and the regional youth program specialist form the county team who are the essential frontline trainers and mentors for new volunteers. This county based team builds the relationships and support systems which will make volunteers successful.
Multi region new volunteer training is designed for new 4-H volunteers committing to a long term experience working with 4-H youth as club, project, Clover Kids – both leaders and assistants. Volunteers committing to these roles are required to attend a multi-region new volunteer training within the first 12 months of being screened and approved as a 4-H volunteer.
The 6 hour training is designed to give new volunteers a better working knowledge of positive youth development, the Iowa 4-H Equation, and tools that will help them be more confident and capable in their roles working with youth. The training includes breakout sessions for Clover Kid volunteers and club volunteers. Volunteers who attend receive a notebook of positive youth development resources and information.
