If you are reading this guide it means you have a passion for horticulture and service and are already serving as a SDSU Extension Master Gardener or intend to – welcome! South Dakota State University is grateful for its many volunteers that help to expand outreach and education efforts across the state.
Specific instructions for filling out and returning the 4-H Volunteer Work Form.
Assurance statements document the commitment of organizations and volunteers to comply with civil rights policies and regulations. All clubs (including 4-H, Master Gardeners, etc.), volunteers, educational partners, cooperating organizations, and entities must sign assurance statements. Assurance statements must be renewed annually.
Volunteers and clubs are a valuable asset to SDSU Extension and by association are considered an arm of Extension. Any organization associated with SDSU Extension must conduct business with the same standards and attitudes as that of SDSU Extension.
SDSU Extension asks that you voluntarily respond to the questions on this form. The information is requested only to make sure we are presenting our programs to a wide range of participants.
