SE Region 4-H Fall Volunteer Leader and Officer Training

October 26, 2019 to November 25, 2019

multiple locations - see information flyer

Annual Volunteer Training

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.
