As the University of Illinois Extension prepares for a new 4-H year, the Extension will be hosting a “Discover 4-H Cloverbuds” workshop for adults interested in working with youth between the ages of five and seven. The workshop will be on Wednesday, August 2nd from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Christian County Extension Office in Taylorville.
Peggy Hampton is a 4-H Youth Development Educator with the U of I Extension. She says 4-H needs adult volunteers because the program is built on volunteers.
Hampton says not only are Cloverbuds groups a precursor to the 4-H program, but they teach kids that they can learning something anywhere at anytime.
There is no cost to participate in the workshop. You can call to register at 287-7246 or you can get a link to their website here.
