Don't Forget! Fall Leaders Training & Officer Training are October 27th

It's that time of year again for the annual Fall Leaders Training! Big Stone and Lac qui Parle counties will be co-hosting the training on Sunday, October 27th from 2:00 pm- 4:00 pm at the Lac Qui Parle County Extension Office Media Room. 

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults learn important life skills that extend beyond traditional academics. Eight out of ten employers say SEL skills are the most important to success and yet also the hardest skills to find.

The 2019 annual volunteer training will ready youth and adult volunteers to connect to young people in meaningful ways. Participants will be able to:

  • Enhance their knowledge of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills;
  • Discover activities to support SEL skills in 4-H program; and
  • Develop a plan to infuse SEL skill building in club / 4-H program.

The statewide fall volunteer training is for all 4-H youth and adult volunteers in clubs and county-wide groups and programs, including committees, Federations, Leader’s Councils and others. Each group should bring a team of youth and adult volunteers to start on strategies. Each Club is asked to bring a team of 3-4 adults & youth. If this date does not work for your team, check the web link below to find additional training dates, locations, and times that may work better for you and your team; volunteers are welcomed at any location. https://z.umn.edu/4HAVTBuildSEL
