Using Technology to Build Capacity in Volunteer Programs- Brown Bag Webinar

Research indicates that nearly one-third of volunteers choose not to continue their service due to poor management practices. Some of the critical practices for volunteer administrators have become increasingly difficult due to budget constraints. This webinar will explore how to better manage volunteers using educational technology and social media to increase organizational capacity. Presented by Molly Frendo from the University of Minnesota Extension.

The University of Minnesota Extension and North Dakota State University Extension have partnered to offer the youth development brown bag webinar series since 2010. The purpose is to provide research-based information on hot topics, trends, and innovative programmatic efforts on content relevant to youth practitioners over the lunch hour (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. CT). The free webinar format provides professional development opportunities for people who work with youth without the cost and travel usually incurred with workshops and conferences. Participants are able to ask questions and get answers in real-time, while the presenter conducts interactive discussions, questions, and polls for sharing and applying the information to participants’ work.

This webinar series is free to participants, but registration is required.

Changing Adolescent Healthy Living Behavior through Mentoring

What happens when partners come together around a vision to make a difference in the lives of young people? A program designed by staff within the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Youth Development invited Southwest Minnesota State University health sciences, the local YMCA and middle school around a program design entitled, Science and Movement (S.A.M) 4-H Club field test pilot. This research field study brought seventh grade youth and health science college students together in a ten-week after school mentoring program utilizing research associated with quality programming. The youth objectives included increase in behavior change around healthy living, awareness of post-secondary options, and community connection. For college students, the results of this research study found that utilizing mentoring as a service-learning strategy became a powerful way to give deeper meaning to a college student’s educational experience. This webinar will allow you to interact and learn from other webinar participants. Presented by Judith Conway & Carrie Olson with the University of Minnesota Extension.

Mentorship (re)explained…

Mentors and mentorship are hot topics! While everyone may agree that this is a fundamental reason for success for our youth, what exactly does this mean? When you dig a little deeper, things are not what they seem. We will pull apart some myths, as well as look at the latest research and best practices in an interactive and thought-provoking session that will challenge the way you think about mentoring. Participants will gain knowledge about mentorship to help strengthen current programs and/or develop a new program. Presented by Joshua Kukowski and Brian McNeil from the University of MN Extension.

The University of Minnesota Extension and North Dakota State University Extension have partnered to offer the youth development brown bag webinar series since 2010. The purpose is to provide research-based information on hot topics, trends, and innovative programmatic efforts on content relevant to youth practitioners over the lunch hour (11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. CT). The free webinar format provides professional development opportunities for people who work with youth without the cost and travel usually incurred with workshops and conferences. Participants are able to ask questions and get answers in real-time, while the presenter conducts interactive discussions, questions, and polls for sharing and applying the information to participants’ work.

This webinar series is free to participants, but registration is required.
