Volunteers Needed: Open Positions
We are in search of community members to fill the following volunteer positions:
Caldwell County 4-H Council Advisers
- Description: Two Caldwell County 4-H Council Advisers will attend county 4-H council meetings each second Monday of the month at 7 p.m. They will be available to give advice and guidance to the council, the youth governing body for the county program.
- Time commitment: The position is a two-year term. To begin the council, one of the two advisers may be selected to serve a one-year term only. It will be recommended that one adviser be selected to also serve on the 4-H program advisory council for Caldwell County, which began in early 2020. The 4-H program advisory council will meet quarterly.
- Qualifications: Advisers must be cleared volunteers (endorsed by NC 4-H’s background check process) or work toward this status after being selected. They must also have a general familiarity with civics and 4-H.
4-H Cooking Club Co-Leader
- Description: Club Leaders provide the necessary organization and structure for 4-H members to reach their full potential and grow into future citizens and leaders. A new co-leader is needed for Cooking Club, and he/she/they will decide with the current leader how to divide club leader responsibilities. The main three categories of club leader responsibilities are record keeping, club communication and leadership.
- Time commitment: The position is a minimum two-year commitment. Club Leaders spend about two to five hours per month on club work, which includes the club’s regular monthly meeting. 4-H Cooking Club meets the third Monday of the month at 6 p.m. in Hudson.
- Qualifications: Club Leaders must be cleared volunteers (endorsed by NC 4-H’s background check process) or work toward this status after being selected. They must enjoy working with youth and be appropriate role models. Club leaders participate in 4-H volunteer training once per year.
County Activity Day judges
- Description: County Activity Day is a program showcasing youth skill and talent. 4-H youth are encouraged to pre-register to compete or participate in a variety of activities, including public speaking, show and tell for our youngest youth and musical performances. Judges give feedback on how to improve these activities for the future. Our highest ranking 4-Hers will move on to the West District contest, so your critique will help them prepare for the next level of competition.
- Time commitment: Two to seven hours, all on April 28, 2020 (Please make a note about the length of time you’d like to volunteer on the interest form.)
- Qualifications: County Activity Day judges must attend a short orientation meeting prior to the contest.
