Why Volunteers? A Philosophy.
National Four-H Club Foundation, Washington, DC.
The pamphlet elaborates on the philosophy that the role of 4-H Club extension agents and volunteers is to help people to do things for themselves, rather than to do things for them. It presents brief discussions of 22 principles dealing generally with the importance of extension agents and volunteers in the operation of 4-H Clubs, the need for personal growth and development of all participants in the clubs, the need for individual consideration and clear role definition for volunteers, the need for learning goals for youth and volunteers to facilitate the implementation of learning experiences, the advantages of group participation, and the need for leadership development.
