This year we are looking for people to volunteer their time to teach in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics for the underserviced youth and teens in Eaton County.

4-H STEAM Corps aims to strengthen communities by engaging underserviced and economically disadvantaged youth in 4-H programs to help them build important life skills and impactful relationships with positive adult role models while working on science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics projects.

What we are asking from you is to volunteer your time to run SPIN (special interest) club meetings by engaging the youth into a new field and give them hands-on experience with STEAM topics. Generally, SPIN clubs should meet approximately 6-8 times and the suggested length of time is about an hour. SPIN Clubs can be structured in a variety of ways depending on volunteer availability, which includes meeting once a week for 6-8 weeks, multiple times a week, or once every week for no more than eight weeks.

We are here to assist you in any way to ensure your project runs smoothly.

Michigan State University Extension strives to provide a safe, nurturing environment for youths participating in its programs. Components of the volunteer process include filling out a volunteer application, a national background check, 3 references, online training modules, and an interview. Once you are accepted as a volunteer, the last step will be signing a volunteer agreement.

After you successfully complete this process, we will meet to discuss what you need to get your club ready to go. Michigan State University Extension and AmeriCorps stands ready to support and assist in your volunteer role.
