Union County 4-H Dog Club Seeks a Leader

Union County, NJ — The Union County 4-H club program is looking for volunteers who love dogs and enjoy working with children, to lead the Union County 4-H Dog Club. The club helps children develop life skills while they learn about the care and training of dogs.

The club leader will be assisted by another adult, and 4-H provides lesson plans and tips on helping children learn the basic skills. No prior teaching experience is required. Some experience with dogs is important but an expert or professional background is not required.

The club is limited to eight members, in 4th through 6th grade. It meets one Saturday morning each month through the school year at the Union County Building at 300 North Avenue in Westfield.

Union County 4-H is a program of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County, supported in part by the Freeholder Board.

To volunteer or to get more information, contact 4-H Agent James Nichnadowicz, 908-654-9854
