Annual Club Volunteer Training

All 4-H Chartered clubs and groups need to have at least one adult volunteer attend Annual Volunteer Training. All adults and youth leaders are encouraged to attend.

This year the state Annual Leader Training will focus on diversity and inclusion and the need to ensure that all young people and adults feel welcome and like they belong in the program. The training, “All Together, Not All the Same” is based on a volunteer training that was developed by colleagues in Minnesota. We have adapted the training for volunteers in Wisconsin. The training is about 90 minutes.

Participants will explore the diversity that exists in their community, recognize their own cultural lens and how it impacts the way they relate to others. Participants will also learn tools and strategies for working across difference in 4-H.

The training will be offered three separate times to allow for various schedules: Thurs, Nov 29, 2018, 1:00 & 6:00 pm; Wed, Jan 30, 2019, 6:00 pm at the UW-Extension office. You must register one week prior to the session you will be attending.

Fill out form to register

If you have any questions, please contact the Fond du Lac County UW-Extension office at 920-929-3170.

Requests for reasonable accommodations for disabilities or limitations should be made prior to the date of the program or activity for which it is needed. Please do so as early as possible prior to the program or activity so that proper arrangements can be made. Requests are kept confidential.

 

Club Officer Information

One of the requirements of a 4-H Club is to have youth involvement in leadership and decision-making.  As a club office you will gain life skills of decision making, problem solving, responsibility, teamwork, leading groups, conflict resolution and more.  Specific information about each officer role is available at the Wisconsin 4-H Community Club Central.

 

Secretary, Reporter, and Historian Forms

All secretary minutes and reporter updates can be emailed to Ann Kaiser at the UW-Extension office.  Information received by the 15th of each month will be highlighted in the Family Times 4-H Newsletter in the following month.

Treasurer Forms

 

Club and Committee Charters

4-H Clubs and committees handling finances must have a 4-H charter, which must be renewed annually.  The 4-H Charter formally recognizes a group’s affiliation with 4-H and grants the group permission to use the 4-H Name and Emblem.  Complete details are available at the Wisconsin 4-H Community Club Central.

 

Health and Photo Forms

Many county, state, and national 4-H events require a health form to enable staff and volunteers to provide basic first aid, respond to medical emergencies, and provide accommodations for youth participants.  Use this form for events, when required.

Permission needs to be granted from parents to use photos and comments of minors for UW-Extension reports, articles, and publications designed for educational, information, and promotional purposes.
