Volunteer efforts in diverse Extension programs mean that we are able to reach more people.
Volunteers often delve into a subject area and are anxious to spread the word to others in their community. Whether it’s exploring opportunities with the 4-H Youth Development program, showing off the latest from the plant trial gardens to their neighbors, teaching Colorado residents how to care for the home landscape, growing fruit and vegetables and then learning how to preserve them safely, or communicating the importance of native plants, volunteers are an essential ingredient to outreach for Colorado State University Extension.
Contact your local county Extension office today to learn how you can be a part of Extension. The benefits that Colorado counties accrue as a result of that investment can be measured in positive youth development, agricultural productivity, family economic stability, improved parenting and family nutrition, climate-appropriate landscaping, and individuals engaged in making their communities better places to live.
