Summary

In expanding a 4-H volunteer program, a systematic way of recruiting, training, utilizing, recognizing, and evaluating the program is needed. There is no one right answer to volunteer leadership problems, but it is important to believe that volunteers are available. They have to see the need and be convinced it is worth their attention, so the image of 4-H is an important factor. So are self-interest and the public opinion of the agent's role. There are many sources of volunteers: high school youth, churches, parents, etc. These can be utilized effectively with an organized recruitment approach. Following recruitment, the individual must be trained in his job and oriented to the organization. Types of training vary with the type of job. The best use of the Extension Agent is to provide him with organizational leaders so more people are reached. Recognition must be given the volunteer in the form of personal praise, written notes, or any of several other methods. Evaluation provides an opportunity for an exchange of benefit to both the volunteer and the agent. Through the volunteer youth leaders the world is being made a better place. (AG)
