Bureau County 4-H Shooting Sports Volunteers Wanted

The fall training for adults interested in joining the Illinois 4-H Shooting Sports program as a volunteer leader will be held October 19th, 2019 from 9:00 am – 7:00 pm at 4-H Memorial Camp, Monticello, IL. Adult volunteers are an important part of the Illinois 4-H Shooting Sports program. All 4-H shooting sports clubs must be led by adults who have completed the training and passed the certification test. 

 

“After the training, our 4-H volunteers understand their role in mentoring youth to become self-directed, confident members of their community,” Curt Sinclair, 4-H Shooting Sports and Environmental Education Extension Specialist said. “Yes, they’ll also teach the fundamentals of safe shooting, but their bigger role will be helping youth feel welcomed, empowered, and successful; generous in spirit; and thoughtful of their fellow club members and the communities where they live.”

 

Instructors are needed in Bureau County in archery, rifle, and pistol, as well as coordinator positions. University of Illinois Extension will cover the cost of registration for two individuals registered by September 27. If you are interested in volunteering for a 4-H Shooting Sports, please contact the University of Illinois Extension Office at (815)875-2878 or des85@illinois.edu for more information. 

 

If you need a reasonable accommodation, please indicate when registering.
