Engaging Volunteers Virtually

Volunteers are greatly valued for the leadership and expertise they bring to Extension programs. With trained, equipped and empowered volunteers, Extension programs can only expand in their capacity and reach more people. Historically, we have expected volunteers to “come to us” for training and resources. However, with today’s full schedules and multiple demands and obligations, the Texas 4-H Youth Development Program has changed their approach to go to the volunteers. Since November 2013, the Texas 4-H Youth Development Program has organized the Virtual Volunteer Conference to provide training and resources to volunteers. These online trainings have proven to be a cost-effective way to reach and train more volunteers, providing them with education and resources needed to LEAD 4-H programs in their communities. Participants of this fast-paced session will learn about the transition Texas made in its training approach, the impact of these virtual trainings and how they can replicate the program in their state.
