Innovation in Volunteerism
One of the key ingredients to effective programming in Extension is having a strong volunteer base. Historically, Extension volunteers have been recruited if they enjoy working with youth and families and have a passion about teaching or supporting a certain program or service. In reality, volunteers can be found almost anywhere and in places where we may least expect them. Engaging volunteers from different socio-economic backgrounds, cultures, and the private sector has its own unique set of rewards and challenges. Join us as we discuss new and different ways to engage volunteers in your community that go beyond the status quo. An introduction to engaging Latino(a) volunteers is also provided.
