The VALUED Volunteer Orientation Program began in 2005 and is intended for all new and inexperienced 4-H leaders.  The series consists of six topics that are offered through a variety of delivery formats – web-based lessons, via the teleconferencing system, and face-to-face meetings. 

The topics in Orientation Series include 

  • Volunteer Role in 4-H
  • Club Organization
  • Program Planning
  • Positive Youth Development/BIG M
  • Communication in a Club
  • Experiential Learning

Each session lasts one hour and volunteers receive special recognition when they complete all six sessions.  A VALUED Volunteer Training Series follows for more experienced 4-H leaders and features nine additional topics.
