Volunteers are very important to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County. Over 100 individuals volunteer their time to a variety of Extension activities, contributing over 100 hours each year!
Through duties as diverse as teaching others to prune trees or make compost, answering callers' questions on consumer or gardening issues, mentoring young people as they acquire new skills, or serving as board members or on committees that guide our work, volunteers represent Extension's far-reaching roots in our community.
Current and Ongoing opportunities appear below, with contact names for additional information. Some programs may require specialized training to participate; upcoming training dates are listed where known.
The next program cycle will be 2024-2025. If you would like more information or to express interest, please contact the office.
The purpose of these committees is to assist CCE in assessing community needs and determining the direction of CCE's educational programs in order to address those needs, utilizing the research knowledge generated at Cornell and other land-grant universities. Because members come to their committees with expertise in their areas, they can help ensure sound educational programming, tap into resources that can enhance program impact, and communicate with other interested organizations and decision-makers.
