4-H is now seeking volunteer leaders to share knowledge with youth

WARRENSBURG - With the Warren County 4-H youth development program expanding, a search is now active for volunteer leaders.

The program sponsors, Warren County Cooperative Extension staff, are looking for adults over the age of 21 to lead 4-H programs.

"We're seeking adults over 21 who are interested in making a difference and have a sincere interest in the youth of Warren County," said Amy Sabattis, spokeswoman for Cooperative Extension.

Training is provided, and the volunteers determine the number of hours they serve.

Those who have special interests or expertise in various fields are particularly needed, Sabattis said.

Currently, 4-H is in search of a project leader for the 4-H Rocketry and Robotics Club. Prospective leaders of this group may either have experience or knowledge in the areas of flight, rockets, planes - or merely enjoy taking things apart just to see how they work, she said.

Also, the 4-H Guide program needs adult volunteers, both male and female over the age of 25, to assist with environmental programs such as tree identification, general camping skills, wildlife identification, astronomy, and more.

All outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy spending time outside and have knowledge of the Adirondacks are urged to volunteer.

If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering or participating, contact Cooperative Extension of Warren County at 668-4881 to speak with a 4-H agent.
