One of the things that distinguishes 4-H from other programs and makes us strong is the role of volunteers. All 4-H clubs must have screened and trained volunteers. Volunteers have been an integral part of the success of 4-H since the 1920’s. Adult 4-H volunteers serve as club leaders, project leaders, camp counselors, etc... Some volunteers work directly with youth and others serve as trainers and mentors. All 4-H volunteers have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to positive youth development.
The dates for the 4-H volunteer trainings are 7/12/14, 7/26/14, 8/9/14 and 8/23/14. These workshops are a one day six hour training that every adult that wishes to become a 4-H volunteer in Hillsborough County for the 2014-2015 4-H program year must attend and pass the evaluation at the end. You only need to pick one of the four sessions offered above.
During this course you will learn the basic information about 4-H Youth Development, 4-H community club operations and your role and responsibilities as a 4-H volunteer. Hillsborough County 4-H is dedicated to helping you to help us be the best we can for our youth. We thank you for desire to share your time and talent with youth through 4-H.
Hillsborough County 4-H Youth Development
The UF/IFAS Extension Hillsborough County 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens. This mission is accomplished by creating safe and inclusive learning environments, involving caring adults, and utilizing the expertise and resources of the University of Florida and the nationwide land grant university system. The UF/IFAS Extension Service Hillsborough County Office offers educational services through a three-way cooperative arrangement between the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners, the University of Florida, and the United States Department of Agriculture. Your local extension agents are faculty members of the University of Florida.
