2017 Fall 4-H Volunteer Training Expanding Our Roots - Growing New Opportunities

Plan to attend the 2017 4-H Fall Volunteer Training, “Expanding Our Roots - Growing New Opportunities” on Saturday, October 28th, from 9 to 11 am at South Central College in Mankato.

 Training will focus on exploring our roots and resources for strengthening a sense of belonging in 4-H.

The statewide fall volunteer training is for all 4-H youth and adult volunteers in clubs and county-wide groups and programs, including committees, Federations, Leader’s Councils and others.  Our goal is for each club or group to be represented. Youth and adults may attend together.  Each group should bring a team of youth and adult volunteers to start on strategies.

Participants will be asked to think about their club/group and how they get members excited and involved in club work and activities.  You will discover ways to create an environment of belonging in our 4-H groups and a plan to recruit, engage and support new members and families.

If the date above does not work for your team, check the web link below to find additional training dates, locations, and times that may work better for you and your team; volunteers are welcomed at any location.  https://z.umn.edu/2017FVT

You will leave this training with:
• Tools to create an environment of belonging in our 4-H groups.
• Ideas from other volunteers on what works for them.
• A plan to recruit, engage and support new members and families.
