Master Wellness Volunteer Training Begins

February 5 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

The Master Wellness Volunteer initiative is a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program that will provide volunteers with 40 hours of training in health and nutrition education. In return, the volunteers agree to give back 40 hours of service. The volunteer opportunities are diverse –leading wellness programs at work, church, or community group, assisting with cooking demos and food preservation workshops, school gardening projects, distributing information at health fairs, and much more.  Not a health professional? Not a problem! We welcome participation from anyone interested in promoting health and wellness: college students, employees, retirees – anyone!  Previous health or wellness training is not required, but an interest in living healthfully and helping others do the same is.  Whether you are a lifelong health enthusiast, have successfully made lifestyle changes, or perhaps just beginning that journey, you could have tremendous benefit to the community as a Master Wellness Volunteer.

The training will begin February 5th and will feature both face-to-face and online, self-paced learning experiences.  Must register by January 31st.  For more information on the Master Wellness Volunteer program, visit https://agrilife.org/mwv/ or contact Joel Redus, County Extension Agent for Family & Community Health, at 936-634-6414 x1 or joel.redus@ag.tamu.edu.
