Cass County Master Wellness Volunteer Program
You can give back to the community while you learn how to improve your own health! Volunteers receive 40 hours of education related to wellness, nutrition, childhood health, food safety, healthy food preparation, public speaking and much more. Trainings are a mix of in-person instruction and online training. Cost of materials is $75 and due at beginning of first session. No refunds will be provided.
The training is conducted by Michelle Valentin, Cass County Extension Agent. Research-based information in the areas of health and wellness is provided. In return, volunteers are asked to give 40 hours of volunteer service to their community through Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Following this first year, volunteers are asked to give 12 hours each year to maintain their certification.
The volunteer opportunities are diverse, and include giving presentations for local community groups, assisting with healthy cooking demonstrations, distributing information at health fairs, and working with schools and after school programs, and much more.
Previous health or wellness training is not required, but an interest in living healthfully and helping others do the same is!
