New volunteers

We couldn't do what we do without our volunteers. Individuals interested in being a 4-H Volunteer must complete a number of steps before they can be approved to be in the care, custody, and control of our 4-H youth. The following explains the processes involved. Thank you for your interest!

Mandatory Advisor Training

As in past years, we are asking each active 4-H advisor to participate in an Advisor Workshop this December. Meeting annually with 4-H volunteers is a legal REQUIREMENT by Ohio State University; Advisor Workshops fulfill that requirement. Advisor Workshops will cover 4-H program changes, suggested Junior Fair rule changes, continuous improvement and broad 4-H Online updates and reminders. Workshops will be held at the Extension Office. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

In order to be an advisor for the 2021-2022 program year, you MUST attend an Advisor Workshop. This year, Advisor Workshops will be two and a half hours long. The first hour and a half will be a blanket training that will cover the necessary information for the coming year. The second hour will be facilitated round table discussions so that advisors can trade ideas and knowledge with each other.

Dates and times offered this year are: TBA

To register, please email Katie your choice. Workshops will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will do our best to assign everyone their selected date; however, we can only comfortably accommodate approximately 40 advisors for any one session. If we have more than that register for a workshop, we will send out an email to discuss alternative solutions (adding another day/time or moving advisors to a different workshop).

Thank you for your volunteerism and all the hard work you do to make Shelby County 4-H successful. I look forward to seeing you all soon!
