Arkansas 4-H to hold volunteer leaders forum

Hundreds of 4-H volunteers from across Arkansas will meet to share ideas for their local programs during the Arkansas 4-H Volunteer Forum Nov. 9-10 at the C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center.

The forum, supported by Monsanto and the National 4-H Council, will bring 4-H volunteers together to network and learn about innovative programs. This networking will provide volunteers with fresh perspectives and activities they can then use in their local 4-H programs.

“This forum is always a great opportunity for leaders from all over the state to share what’s working in their programs and get ideas they can take back,” said Mike Klumpp, associate professor of 4-H youth development for the Arkansas Extension Service.

Training during the two days will include team-building activities and problem-solving initiatives that leaders can use with their 4-H’ers.
