Master Wellness Volunteer

I'm training to become a Master Wellness Volunteer. What is that? It's where you receive 40 hours of education related to wellness, nutrition, childhood health, food safety, healthy food preparation, public speaking and much more!
The training is conducted by County FCS (Family and Consumer Science) Extension Agents and health professionals who teach information in the area of health and wellness.
In return, you are asked to give 40 hours of volunteer service to the Texas AgriLife Extension Services health and wellness program.
The MWV symbol is an apple.
There are tons of Volunteer opportunities-giving presentations for local community groups, assisting with healthy cooking demonstrations, distributing information at health fairs, working with schools and after school programs, and tons of other things. Our FCS agent Lauren,  who is super nice, is letting me train to become a junior volunteer. She also lets me give speeches to the group! I've been having a lot of fun learning new things!
