4-H Volunteer Cabin Fever Series

4-H volunteer online resources iconNeed a little change of pace this winter? Looking for an opportunity to connect with other 4-H volunteers? Maine 4-H is excited to offer some short, fun virtual learning opportunities for 4-H volunteers! Whether you are a club volunteer who has worked with a group of youth for a number of years, or a newly enrolled volunteer trying to decide how you can get involved, the Maine 4-H program has something for you. Register to join us for one, two or all three virtual sessions in our January Cabin Fever Series on Tuesday evenings from 7:00pm-8:00pm. The best part is you can cozy up with a blanket and your slippers, a cup of hot cocoa and a snack and join us from the comfort of your own home!

Sessions:

Virtual 4-H Special Interest Clubs – What’s All the Hype? 

Led by Sarah Sparks, Greg Kranich, and Jen Lobley

Not quite ready to hold in-person meetings with youth during this time of COVID? Have something you have thought about sharing with youth and weren’t quite sure how to find the time to travel, get them together, or even where to start? Join us for a session to learn how you can offer a short-term virtual experience for youth. Hear from 4-H staff members, Sarah and Greg who offered a virtual club this summer for 6 weeks to learn tips and tricks for facilitating a fun 4-H project via Zoom.

Maximum attendees: 16 

When:  Tuesday, January 12, 2021, 7:00 – 8:00 pm.


Taking 4-H Outdoors

Led by Brittany Foster and Jen Lobley

Join us for an interactive virtual session that explores how to get your 4-H members outdoors. Learn both the benefits of taking youth outside and a simple process to help you plan out an outdoor experience for 4-Hers. Resources and activity ideas are included.

Maximum attendees: 20

When:  Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 7:00-8:00 p.m.


When Your 4-H Club Can’t Meet in Person…GO VIRTUAL!

Led by 4-H Volunteer Heidi Baker and Jen Lobley

Not being able to meet indoors with our 4-H members for club meetings has been hard. And meeting outdoors this time of year may not be ideal! Join us to hear how 4-H club leaders are moving their club meetings to Zoom and meeting virtually. Does it work? Can you do it if you don’t consider yourself tech-savvy? Will the youth attend?

Maximum attendees: 20

When:  Tuesday, January 26, 2021, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
