Kansas 4-H Volunteer Forum

Mission Possible

November 22-24, 2013

Rock Springs 4-H Center


The Kansas Volunteer Forum is open to all 4-H Volunteers.

Registration is due October 15th.  Click here to register.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join other 4-H Volunteers from around the state to get energized and become more informed.  To accomplish this mission you must report to Rock Springs 4-H Center, November 22nd and stay for training until November 24th.  There you will receive further instructions from Keynote speaker Patty Hendrickson.

To hone your skills, there will be 13 minute Lightening Rounds covering the topics of: Skill-a thons; Keeping Cloverbuds Involved; Keep the Teens; and A Happy Club.

There will also be Saturday afternoon training sessions.  These will be: iPad Basics; Keep The Teens; DIY With Home Environment; Rock Springs Tour; T-shirt Quilt Blocks; Welcoming New Families; Establishing Shooting Sports in Your County; Calling Club Leaders to Share Their Wisdom; Explore the Kansas 4-H Website and Investigate 4-H Webinars; and a round table discussion on Where Do I Find Project Leaders.

During the evening hours there will be time for social interaction with games, down time, and silent auction bidding…perhaps even a live auction!  The proceeds from the silent auction will be sent to Oklahoma 4-H to support Moore County 4-Hers.  Sunday morning will feature the KYLF Inspirational Service, and a 4-H update by Dr. Barbara Stone

Volunteers, Should you choose to accept this mission, you will return home safely with energy and ideas to improve your 4-H program.  Best Wishes and Good luck!

Cost of the Forum is $140 for Kansas Association of 4-H Volunteers members, $165 for non-members.  Dues are $5.00 and can be paid at the Forum.  Payment at the Forum will qualify you for the member rate.  Registration is due October 15.
