Free online training for new 4-H Stream Team volunteers
Adults throughout Pennsylvania have a new opportunity to become volunteers for the 4-H Stream Teams Program.
A free, online training will be held by Penn State Extension to teach interested adults how to form and guide youth in the 4-H Stream Teams Program. This training is open to anyone who already works with youth, such as 4-H volunteers, scout leaders, camp directors, or classroom teachers and to any adult that is looking for an opportunity to share their interest in the environment with youth.
In addition to teaching youth about valuable water resources, 4-H programs also provide important leadership, citizenship, and life skills that will benefit youth throughout their lives. The trainings will be hosted live, in a four part series, starting Jan. 29, and will be offered in the afternoon and evening.
The mission of the 4-H Stream Teams Program is to guide youth in learning about the water resources in their local community and encourage them to become water stewards and concerned citizens now and in the future.
Registration is free, but required and can be completed at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/StreamTeamsTraining.
