The Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative and Huron Pines are partnering with Michigan State University Extension to offer a professional development opportunity designed to explore the best practices for engaging youth.

-Participants will learn the research-based best practices for engaging with youth in the exploration of their world

-Whether you’re consistently working with youth or just encounter them from time to time, having the skills to effectively engage with youth is essential to any natural resource profession. 

The opportunity to complete a 4-H Volunteer application will be provided. This process will require some pre-work completing online forms, watching informational videos and completing an interview with MSU Extension staff. For any participants interested in working with youth professionally or personally, this process will show future employers your community leadership and youth development skills. Individuals interested should follow the directions here (https://www.canr.msu.edu/resources/msu_extension_volunteer_selection_process) and set up your profile on 4-H online.

Registration is limited to the first 16 people!
