The New Volunteer Orientation (NVO) is a requirement for volunteer candidates. NVO’s provide a “Learn To Do By Doing’ experience. This two-hour orientation provides hands-on experience and information in order to equip volunteer candidates with the necessary skills and knowledge they will require to volunteer with 4-H.

Topics covered include: what is 4-H, club management, risk management, local association roles and responsibilities and programming opportunities for members. These sessions are designed for those who have not previously volunteered with 4-H, including Youth Directors.
