Best Practices, Community Building, Working with Volunteers

Volunteers are the lifeblood of many communities. Many communities address issues and accomplish tasks solely using volunteer help. Often, projects, events and activities wouldn’t happen without the time, commitment and support of volunteers. To sustain and expand the volunteer base in a community, the following are important points to consider.

Community Building, Working with Volunteers

Today, many communities are managed in large part by volunteers. Volunteers hold elected positions in government, lead and run community boards and organizations, operate fire departments, raise funds for schools, and are stewards of a community’s natural resources. The time, energy and resources they bring are critical to the community’s existence. As financial and paid human resources are allocated to address complex and critical community issues, volunteer resources step in to fill the gap. More and more in rural communities, volunteers are the lifeblood of a community’s day ?to?day functioning.

Preparing Volunteers for Todays 4-H

Is there a formula for creating a dynamic 4-H year?  Start with head, heart, hands and health (H4).  Blend in belonging, mastery, independence and generosity (BMIG).  Add some special ingredients (SI) and blend well.  Serve enthusiastically to developing children and youth with food, fun and 4-H friends (F3).  Come and experience a 4-H planning model (AKA the 4-H Framework) sure to ignite the imagination of everyone involved with your 4-H program.
