One youth, one adult from each club at Annual Volunteer Training!

November 18, 2019

6:00pm - 7:30pm

Adult Community Center, 107 S 4th St, Marshall

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults learn important life skills. There is increasing recognition that graduating from high school and being prepared for college and career requires a skill set that extends 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 overwhelming majority of school administrators (96%), teachers (93%) and parents (81%) believe that SEL is just as important as academic learning.

Volunteers will leave this session with SEL tools and activities, as well as an action plan to embed SEL skill-building into 4-H programming.

The statewide volunteer training is for all 4-H youth and adult volunteers in clubs, county and tribal programs, including project development committees, federations, leader’s councils, and other groups. At least one volunteer from each club, program or group must plan on attending, but volunteers are encouraged to come as a team of youth and adults.
