OGLESBY — A volunteer training, “Unboxing the Best Practices in 4-H,” was held for 4-H volunteers in Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall and Putnam counties this past April at Illinois Valley Community College in Oglesby.
Judy Bingman, state 4-H media specialist, visited to provide inspiration and ideas for the volunteers to take back to their 4-H clubs.
The volunteers were given lesson plans, activities and giveaways to use with the 4-H members. Training topics included Cloverbuds, community service, STEM, marketing and leadership.
A special appreciation lunch was served at the conclusion of the program.
