Cape May County 4-H invites young graduates looking for work experience, 4-H alumni, parents looking for quality activities for their children and those who are retired to learn how they can connect and share with the youth of our county. Volunteer orientations are currently slated for Wednesday, April 3rd from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m; Thursday, May 16th from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Thursday, June 20th at 6:30 pm. The trainings will take place at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension office, 355 Court House – S. Dennis Rd., in Cape May Court House.
“We are currently looking for club leaders for gardening, photography, science, engineering and technology and herpetology programs. Corporate and Leadership volunteers are being sought for the Cape May County 4-H Foundation, and we are always looking for good folks who can pitch in and lend a hand at the upcoming 4-H Fair. 4-H grows great kids. In order to grow the 4-H program, we need to cultivate more volunteers“, explains County 4-H Agent Julie Karavan.
Interested volunteers complete an application, attend training and meet with 4-H staff prior to their appointment. Volunteers serving as 4-H Club leaders are provided curriculum, resources and support for the clubs and programs they develop and implement. To be a 4-H volunteer is to connect with kids and to share your talents and knowledge, to network with other adults with similar interests, to build career experience and to choose a flexible schedule that fits your lifestyle.
4-H volunteer opportunities are varied to suit your interests and the time commitment is flexible. Call 465-5115 x 605, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information about the scheduled orientations, current volunteer opportunities and to preregister.
The 4-H Youth Development Program is part of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station and Rutgers Cooperative Extension. 4-H educational programs are offered to all youth, grades K-13, on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
