Get Involved

Virginia Cooperative Extension relies on volunteers to accomplish its mission. We believe that active citizen involvement in our programs makes a difference in our success. The work of volunteers at the local level helps us leverage our paid faculty and staff resources into a much greater impact for the people of Virginia.

There are many ways you can get involved with us. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss available opportunities.

Campbell County Extension Leadership Council

The Campbell County Extension Leadership Council is a volunteer council whose mission is to advance and promote the educational programs of Virginia Cooperative Extension – Campbell County.  ELC members can have varying degrees of familiarity with Extension programming.  ELC members may be an active volunteer with VCE –Campbell County or a local citizen that would like to become more familiar with Extension programs.  The purpose of the Campbell County Extension Leadership Council includes:

• Serve as a communications link between VCE and all relevant program partners/stakeholders in Agriculture and Natural  Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, and 4-H Youth Development.

• Plan and implement public relations activities in support of VCE.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can become involved with your county Extension Leadership Council, contact VCE – Campbell County (434) 332-9538.  

Program Input
Virginia Cooperative Extension is interested in listening to your ideas of local issues and needs that VCE could address. Your input is valuable to us, as it helps us stay in touch with the pulse of the community. We are constantly striving to keep our educational programs relevant to citizens needs. We invite you to contact VCE Campbell County (434) 332-9538 or any of the county ELC members to share your ideas.

Campbell County 4-H Youth Development

The Campbell County 4-H program relies on volunteers to keep the program running.  Adult volunteers magnify the impact 4-H can have on a community by expanding the resources.  Many 4-H programs would not be possible without the assistance of adult volunteers.  Listed below are adult volunteer positions available. 

•  4-H Club Organizational Leader (community, project, or special interest clubs)

•  4-H Project Leaders – assist organizational leader and may lead project work

•  Adult Club Volunteer- assists club leaders with club operation

•  Adult Camp Volunteer – assists with camp supervision and/or possibly teaching a camp class

•  Campbell County 4-H Leadership Council Member – The Campbell County 4-H Leadership Council is a subcommittee of the Extension Leadership Council.  This council works to support the local 4-H program and promote the 4-H to the Campbell County community.

Campbell County 4-H has a three step screening process for all volunteers.  Each volunteer must complete a volunteer application, reference checks, and a face-to -face interview.  This is for the safety of our 4-H youth members as well as finding the most suitable positions for adult volunteer applicants.
