Texas A&M AgriLife Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) is part of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M System. AgriLife Extension offers practical information for families: raising children, housing and environment, eating well, managing money, and staying healthy.
The Master Wellness Volunteer training program, now in its sixth year, is an engaging series of day-long classes that provides volunteers with 40 hours of training in health and nutrition education. In return, the volunteers agree to give back 40 hours of service to their community.
A certification exam on the final day of training assures that each proud volunteer has the tools and knowledge needed to represent the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
The training focuses on Nutrition, Food Safety, Chronic Disease Prevention, Diabetes, and making Healthy Lifestyle Choices. The reasons Texans become Master Wellness Volunteers are as varied as the opportunities to volunteer.
