Engaging Millennials and Xers in Volunteer Roles - Brown Bag Webinar

Understanding generational characteristics can help youth development professionals engage new community members in volunteer roles. Generation X are part of the population born between 1965 and 1980, while Millennials were born 1981-2000. Defining moments in each generation help shape how they make decisions and how they spend their time. Join a Millennial and a Gen Xer to learn more about these generations and how to use this knowledge to recruit and strengthen your education efforts when working, learning, and volunteering together. Webinar participants will engage in activities to design programming and recruitment messaging for these volunteers.

Presenters: Rachelle Vettern, Leadership & Volunteer Development Specialist and Emily Goff, 4-H Youth Development Agent – Ward County – NDSU Extension
