Next training class to be held Spring 2019.
You can give back to the community while you learn how to improve your own health! Volunteers receive 40 hours of education related to wellness, nutrition, childhood health, food safety, healthy food preparation, public speaking and much more. Trainings are a mix of in-person instruction and online training. Cost of materials is $75 and due at beginning of first session. No refunds will be provided after the beginning of the class.
The training is led by Brittany Martin, County Extension Agent – Dallas County. Research-based information in the areas of health and wellness is provided. In return, volunteers are asked to give 40 hours of volunteer service to their community through Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Following this first year, volunteers are asked to give 15 hours each year to maintain their certification.
The volunteer opportunities are diverse, and include giving presentations for local community groups, assisting with healthy cooking demonstrations, distributing information at health fairs, and working with schools and after school programs, and much more. Though programs may be offered on evenings and weekends, be advised that these are not a guarantee. Many of our partners maintain standard business hours, and many opportunities will be during this time.
Previous health or wellness training is not required, but an interest in living healthfully and helping others do the same is! For more information, contact Brittany Martin at Brittany.email@example.com
