Abstract

The purpose of this study was to assess the management of volunteers through self-perceptions of Texas 4-H volunteers. This research was an on-line questionnaire designed to assess volunteer's attitudes toward recruitment, orientation, training, resources, utilization, motivations for continuation of service, and recognition. The following were recommendations: Orientation should become an integral part of all county 4-H volunteer management programs. Curriculum should be developed in the areas of volunteer and club management. All volunteers should be recognized for their contributions to the program.
