VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY FOR DOG LOVERS WITH UNION COUNTY 4-H

 

Elizabeth, NJ -  Members of the Union County 4-H Dog Obedience Club are looking for adult volunteers who can help them learn the basics of training dogs for obedience, agility and showmanship.  Any adult with experience in these areas is welcome to apply.  The meetings are supervised by parent volunteers and 4-H leaders, providing the volunteer trainers with a fun, safe atmosphere in which to share their knowledge.  The club members are 4th-grade students in Union County schools.

The club starts in September and runs through the school year.  It meets on Friday afternoons from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the Union County Administrative Services Building in Westfield.

For more information about volunteering, contact Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Agent, James Nichnadowicz at 908-654-9854 ext. 2236 or jnichnadowicz@ucnj.org.

The 4-H Youth Development Program is a non-profit, government sponsored program and is supported by the United States Department of Agriculture, Rutgers University and the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
