Volunteers are a critically important component of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.  Volunteers help us reach more people, ensure that programs are relevant, help us deliver educational programs and assist with interpreting the value of Extension to others.  Volunteers help people gain knowledge and skills that will benefit them for life.  In return, volunteers get the satisfaction of knowing ther are making a difference for friends and neighbors. The knowledge and skills you gain from this course will help you be a successful volunteer administrator, which will lead to successful volunteers and a successful agency.  Understanding Volunteer Trends, appreciating the different Volunteer Types, following the ISOTURE Model, and enforcing Youth Protection Standards puts Texas A&M AgriLife Extension on the right track to continued volunteer success.
