4-H Adult Volunteers Needed
The Oneida County 4-H program focuses not only on positive youth development, but on leadership development in adults who wish to devote time to working with youth. Leader training, while mandated in 4-H in order to work with youth, is an opportunity to develop skills that can be used in a variety of youth programming settings. The training also gives adults the chance to explore their interests and hobbies, as well as how they can feel personally rewarded by working with youth.
Currently there is a specific need for adults interested in working in the Drama or Woodworking project areas. Interested individuals do not have to work alone, and if volunteering in after school settings, don’t have to give up evening time. Additionally, when volunteering for after school programming, in some cases school equipment can be used for the project instructional purposes.
The next 4-H volunteer leader training is scheduled for September 29 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. in the basement of the Rhinelander Oneida County Airport. There is no fee for this instruction and no minimum volunteer requirements following instruction completion.
