Work with volunteers? (10/30/2015)

Achieving the Extension Mission through Volunteers logoNDSU Extension Service values and greatly benefits from the assistance of volunteers not only with our 4-H youth development programs but other Extension relationships like Master Gardeners, and crop and livestock improvement associations. Consequently, district directors will support the registration of two agents per district in the online course “Achieving the Extension Mission Through Volunteers.” The six-week course that begins Jan. 18, 2016 takes a serious commitment but is worth the effort. Please see the video, course at a glance and overview for more information.

Rachelle Vettern, Extension leadership/volunteer development specialist, is one of several instructors from the North Central Region, and Todd Weinmann, Acacia Stuckle and Katelyn Hain, agents, were participants in the pilot offering last year and can give you feedback if you’d like to visit with them. To pursue registration fee support, please send a short paragraph describing your interest in the course to your district director by Thursday, Nov. 5. They will make selections so that registration can occur on Nov. 6. Specialists and other interested agents can self-register using the code NCRVS to receive a $150 regional discount on the $250 fee.

Chris Boerboom, Extension Director
