2016 4-H Professional Development From Your Desk Session #4 "4-H Volunteer Management: Setting the Stage for a Sustainable 4-H Volunteer Program"

Presenters: Joshua Dallin, Utah State University Extension

A County 4-H volunteer management plan must be in place before a volunteer shows interest, commitment, or willingness. This process will allow a match to occur that unifies the needs of the 4-H program and needs of the volunteer. This training will walk through the Utah 4-H Volunteer Management handbook. We will explore train-the-trainer options by looking at 4-H customer service, needs assessments, a new-age volunteer recruitment approach, risk management strategies, and goal setting.

The 2016 4-H Professional Development From Your Desk Virtual Conference is being sponsored by the Western Region 4-H Youth Development programs-Alaska, California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, and New Mexico.
