In episode 8 of the Next Step to Success podcast, Darrell Dromgoole talks with Jayla Fry, Extension Program Specialist in Horticultural Sciences. They talk about the reasons why we have Master volunteer programs and how important volunteers are to spreading knowledge to Texans.
In this episode, Jayla describes the best ways agents can help their Master volunteers succeed in serving Texans. She explains how important it is to not only train Master volunteers to be knowledgeable, but also to motivate and encourage them to be a part of the AgriLife Extension family. Jayla describes how important it is to have agents line out volunteers’ job expectations, talk with volunteers about our mission, and show your appreciation on their efforts.
