Adult volunteers are currently needed for a couple of hours each month to serve as club leaders for local 4-H clubs in Bristol and Norfolk counties.
The role of a 4-H volunteer leader is to provide skills from their own area of expertise while developing a meaningful relationship with youth. Especially needed are volunteers with skills in dog care and obedience, horse care, small animal care such as rabbits and poultry and general science.
The goal of the 4-H program is to help youth, ages 5 to 18, become competent and caring adults through positive mentoring, learning how to take community action and increasing their sense of self-esteem, responsibility, fairness, trust and decision making techniques.
The 4-H office provides training, resource materials, activity curriculum and support.
âWe need people who have an interest in spending time with young people and who want to learn alongside them,â said Jay Field, 4-H educator for Bristol and Norfolk counties.
For more information, contact the 4-H office at 508-668-9793 or by email at email@example.com.
4-H is an outreach education program of the University of Massachusetts/Amherst in cooperation with the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture.
