4-H Volunteer Leader Update ...


WHY SHOULD YOU VOLUNTEER?

You have a lifetime of experience
Each of us has lived a unique life --- traveling different roads, seeing different things. We’ve experienced the world in our own way, giving each of us a unique blend of perspective, knowledge, skills and talents. We’ve learned many of life’s lessons on our own, and some we’ve been taught by others. Just think how much the next generation could benefit from your lifetime of experience.

Sharing your experiences can enrich a young life
Kids can get only so much from textbooks. They need to explore new things and develop “real life” skills in order to gain self-esteem. These are the key ingredients for becoming happy, productive citizens. But, even though they are eager to learn, today’s kids all too often don’t have the opportunity to benefit from the diverse experiences of adults. Kids are our future leaders; their minds are open and they appreciate the guidance and advice that comes only with experience --- your experience.
