About

Wagner Youth Squad involves local students, ages 14-17, in farm life and museum operations by hands-on volunteering in various areas of the historic farm and museum. Students earn a certificate of appreciation by completing 40 or more hours of volunteer work in a season. Squad volunteer activities vary with the time of year and include helping with special events, gardening, giving tours and helping visitors learn about our farm animals. Youth Squad volunteers may join at any time during the season, but the number of hours to achieve the certificate for that season remains the same.

Youth Squad members will volunteer 36 or more hours in any of the volunteer areas, plus an additional four hours at the Fall Harvest Event in October. Successful completion of the program earns each member the certificate and a letter of reference suitable for college and/or employment application purposes.
