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.

Warren County 4-H Volunteer Leaders Association (VLA)

The Volunteer Leaders Association supports the activities of the Warren County 4-H Program through educational experiences, fundraising and other volunteer efforts.  The VLA participates in events such as Festival of the Leaves, Miss Warren County 4-H Pageant, Warren County Fair, Front Royal - Warren County Christmas Parade and many more.  The VLA meets the 4th Monday of each month at 7pm at the Warren County Community Center.

Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners (MGs)

Sponsored by the Virginia Cooperative Extension, Master Gardeners are volunteer educators within our community who serve the public by assisting local Extension Agents to provide sound and practical gardening information to area property and homeowners.  You will discover MGs answering questions at your local farm markets, providing garden demonstrations, writing articles for the local media, and responding to inquiries on the "green line".  MGs are in the Warren County Extension Office to answer questions on Monday mornings from 9am-1pm from May thru September.

See more at the Northern Shenandoah Valley Master Gardeners website.

Warren County Extension Leadership Council (ELC)

An Extension Leadership Council is composed of a diverse group of salaried and volunteer staff who truly own an ever-changing Cooperative Extension program in their planning area.  The ELC assumes responsibility not only for identifying the needs and concerns that exist in their planning area, but share a commitment to determining solutions, implementing them, and evaluating and reporting results. The diversity of the group enhances discussions, deliberations, and actions. In addition, there is a recognition that each person brings unique experiences and information that will contribute to the process.  The ELC serves as a advocate for Extension and its programs.  The ELC meets on a quarterly basis at the Warren County Extension Office.
