2017 National 4-H Volunteer e-forum logo - #4HGrows through volunteers
We are excited to have Maine participate in the first National 4-H Volunteer e-Forum this fall.
The sessions will be taking place on the following dates:
  • Thursday, November 2– STEMMING into Animal Science, Growing True Leaders
    Build on the roots of 4-H as we STEM our way into agriculture and animal science for experienced and new 4-H’ers. Gain resources to incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) leaders through traditional animal sciences project areas in communities. Volunteers will gain ideas for planning and organizing fun, educational sessions for youth.
  • Thursday, December 7– Helping 4-Her’s Grow in Life and Work
    In 4-H, all youth can explore their future. Club meetings, events, camps, and after-school programs are places to develop life skills and expand their interests through 4-H. During this session volunteers will share ideas, receive resources, and see a variety of successful programs that help youth focus on life-long learning, workforce readiness, and career exploration. Caring adults can help all young people make decisions and create their own positive future.
