NDSU Extension Offers 4-H Volunteer Project Training
North Dakota Ag Connection - 11/06/2018

4-H volunteers likely have been stumped at some point about what project youth would like to start.

North Dakota State University Extension's Center for 4-H Youth Development is offering project training for 4-H volunteers in four North Dakota communities in November.

"Attending one of these events is a great way for teen and adult volunteers to gather new 4-H project ideas that create fun learning experiences for all 4-H members," says Rachelle Vettern, 4-H leadership and volunteer development specialist.

The dates and locations for the training are:

- Nov. 15, 6 to 9 p.m., Glen Ullin Public School

- Nov. 26, 6 to 9 p.m., North Star Public School, Cando

- Nov. 29, 6 to 9 p.m., Ward County Administration Building, Minot

Topics that will be covered are the Impact Teen Drivers program, how to make an insect collection, 4-H robotics and technology, teaching youth basic jewelry-making skills, the 4-H livestock quiz bowl, and how to excite teens about 4-H and add zest to 4-H meetings. Volunteers also will be able to explore some 4-H projects and educational trunks, which contain hands-on lessons, directions and most of the materials needed to conduct a lesson on a particular topic.

Visit to register for the training. For more information, contact Micki Mertz at 701-231-7259 or
