[October 24, 2014]  LINCOLN - 4-H is looking for willing volunteers to lead mini breakout sessions at our upcoming officer training, “Building a Better Tomorrow” on Saturday, November 8th, from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Logan County Extension Office, 980 N. Postville Dr., Lincoln.

Why do we have officer training?

  • To teach officers their specific officer responsibilities.
  • To reinforce concepts for members who have been officers previously.
  • To build teamwork and trust in the club officer team, which leads to a more effective and successful year.
  • To demonstrate a successful club meeting.
  • To give officers a chance to learn from each other through asking questions and discussing the characteristics of their club’s meetings, activities and members.
  • To allow members to get to know 4-H’ers from across the county.

If you are willing to volunteer, responsibilities would include leading a mini breakout session for one of the officer groups, for example president, vice president, secretary, treasurer or recreation. If you have a preference as to what officer group you would like to work with please specify when you reply. 4-H staff would provide the activities/curriculum that you would be doing. Officer teams be comprised of 12 youth maximum per group. The session would last 25 minutes and would go from 10:00-10:30a.m.

This is an amazing opportunity to build youth leadership, impact a youth with a positive youth/adult relationship and help them to build a better 4-H community club experience! If you have that date & time available and are willing to assist (we think you’d be great), please let me know by Friday, October 31st so that we can move forward with our plans for “Building a Better Tomorrow” 4-H Officer Training.
