4-H volunteers sought; club meets set

BECOME A 4-H VOLUNTEER

The St. Johns County 4-H Youth Development Program is seeking caring adult volunteers to work with 4-H youth ages 5-18 in St. Johns County.

As a 4-H club or project leader, 4-H volunteers have an opportunity to share their interests with youth. The 4-H project areas include animal and plant science, healthy living, citizenship, environmental education, technology, food preparation, photography and more. The reward of sharing your interest with a young person is priceless.   Through a “learn by doing” experience, 4-H volunteers help youth learn leadership, communication, citizenship and a variety of life skills that enable them to become capable and caring citizens.

4-H Volunteers have the flexibility to determine the amount of time, location and subject area they prefer.  Volunteers receive full assistance of the 4-H Office, including training, office support, and a variety of resource materials and project curriculum.  An orientation for new Club and Project Volunteers will take place on Tuesday, August 8th from 6:30pm to 8pm at the St. Johns County Extension Office located at 3125 Agricultural Center Drive, St. Augustine, FL 32092.

For information call the 4-H Office at 904 209-0430 by Aug. 4  if you would like to attend the 4-H volunteer orientation on Tuesday, Aug. 8.
