Volunteers are very important to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Lewis County. Extension benefits from the contributions of many hours from volunteers in areas as diverse as 4-H youth development, gardening, nutrition education, and assistance in the office as well as Board of Directors and various committee member opportunities.
Prospective volunteers that work with vulnerable populations (children, individuals with disabilities, etc.) will be asked to complete an application form and consent to a criminal background screening at Cooperative Extension's expense, as a means of ensuring the safety and security both of our volunteers and of the people we serve through our programs.
