4-H Recruiting Volunteers-

4 hMichigan is filled with talented and passionate people with a wealth of skills, knowledge and expertise. Thousands of young people in Michigan 4-H need caring adult volunteers with those same skills to guide their way. To interest more adults in giving their time and talents to help Michigan youth, the state has launched a 4-H volunteer recruitment campaign.  Interested volunteers can give their time in a variety of ways: 4-H programs range from animal science to career preparation, clothing and textiles to science and technology, and performing arts to youth entrepreneurship. Some of the ways St. Clair County volunteers contribute is by working with staff to present programming, leading clubs, assisting with county events like Animal Mania, mentoring through urban gardening, chaperoning events, teaching workshops and being available to assist other club leaders.  “If you want to make an impact on the next generation, becoming a Michigan 4-H volunteer is one of the best ways you can do that,” according to Lori Warchuck, 4-H Program Coordinator “You don’t have to be a parent” she says,  or even related to a 4-H’er to get involved. Anyone can volunteer, and it’s a great opportunity to make your mark on the next generation.”  Learn how you can get involved by visiting http://4h.msue.msu.edu/volunteers or by contacting Lori Warchuck at the St. Clair County MSU Extension Office at (810) 989-6935 or emailing her had lwarchuck@stclaircounty.org
