Beltrami County celebrated National Volunteer Week the week of April 17-23.

Each year, thousands of volunteers in Minnesota donate their time and energy to make their communities a better place to live. These volunteers will be among the millions across the country who will be spotlighted.

According to a press release, one group that relies heavily on volunteers is the University of Minnesota Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program.

During National Volunteer Week and every week throughout 2022, Minnesota 4-H celebrates and appreciates its more than 6,700 volunteers, each one critical to the success of 4-H programs and making a difference in the lives of youth.

In Beltrami County 4-H, 87 volunteers serve as club leaders, project leaders, committee members and in advisory capacities for the 4-H Youth Development Program.
