A workshop for all area 4-H volunteers will be held on Wednesday, April 10 beginning at 6 p.m. at the West Central Research and Extension Center auditorium, in the Snyder Building at 402 W. State Farm Rd. in North Platte. Nebraska State 4-H Specialist Cathy Johnston from Lincoln will present this workshop and state 4-H program manager Kris Spath will present the session for youth,
Spath is also from Lincoln.
This volunteer training opportunity is supported by grant funds from Monsanto and is free to the public, whether you are current 4-H volunteer or have an interest in becoming a 4-H volunteer.
The opening session will be about "Providing a Safe Environment for Youth and Managing Risk," with highlights of some of the Youth Safety Policy changes.
There will then be time for hands-on activities centered around signature outcomes, including animal science; agricultural literacy; science, engineering and technology; citizenship and leadership; healthy living; careers; child and family development, that leaders could easily take back to their clubs.
A light meal or snacks will be provided to all participants. Youth ages 12-18 can also attend the youth session on animal science and leadership, and have a chance to do hands-on activities too.
If you are interested in attending, please call the Extension Office at 308-532-2683 by noon on Wednesday to register and be included in the meal count.
