Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Development staff announces statewide trainings for all new 4-H Club, Clover Kid and Project Leaders. This training is targeted to those who are beginning as volunteers or those with three years or less experience. The training is open to all volunteers and current club leaders are encouraged to attend if they have not attended before.

Advantages of this training program include: learning about the role of a caring adult, dynamic training to boost positive youth development knowledge and skills in order to support a vibrant 4-H club or Clover Kids group, and an opportunity to meet and network with other volunteers. The interactive training includes an agenda loaded with knowledge, skills, and tools needed to enhance a volunteer’s work with 4-H youth. There will be age appropriate breakout sessions specific for 4-H Clubs and Clover Kids groups to provide more targeted skill building for volunteers working with those specific age groups. Volunteers will receive a binder of resources to prepare them for working with their club or group.

Training will be held in southeast Iowa on Saturday, March 29, 2014 at the Scott County Extension Office in Bettendorf 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There are numerous trainings throughout the state; volunteers are able to attend any of the locations. To register, go to or call your local county office. Registration is due by March 24th for the March 29th session. The training will include a binder of resources and lunch. There is no fee to attend.
