Thank a Volunteer This Week!

Arizona statistically has 1,229,997 volunteers that average 174 million hours of volunteering per year. Cochise County averages 100 4-H volunteers putting in countless hours into our programs and youth each year, the Master Gardener program averages 40 volunteers with about 2,000 hours volunteered per year, and the many other Cooperative Extension program volunteers who give abundantly of their time.

During National Volunteer Week, April 23rd through the 29th we want to honor the contribution that volunteers continue to make to the Arizona 4-H and Master Gardener Programs. Volunteers in local 4-H and Master Gardener programs spend countless hours organizing and conducting educational activities, serve as organizational and project leaders, council and committee members, camp counselors, fair superintendents, lead community service projects, and meet the needs of our community.

We are thankful that volunteers across the state are working to build a better future for our youth and their communities through the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension.

National Volunteer Appreciation Week is the perfect opportunity to thank and acknowledge volunteers for their efforts in supporting our programs.
