The series, taught by educators from the University of Minnesota  and NDSU Extension, provides research-based information on hot topics, trends and program ideas for youth workers.  The 2022-2023 series focuses on thriving youth programs.  Dissolving projects. Underperforming groups. Burned out volunteer leaders. Sound familiar? Minnesota 4-H Youth Development program staff observed these statewide trends amongst 4-H groups, projects and activities. Upon investigation, they found that 4-H groups needed to develop systems to fill retiring volunteer leader positions (succession planning) and rotate leadership responsibilities (shared leadership). Join us for a training on implementing and promoting a succession plan and shared leadership model in your volunteer program. We will discuss tools developed to support staff and volunteers in creating thriving environments, as well as post-implementation success stories.
