Get Involved

Virginia Cooperative Extension relies on volunteers to accomplish its mission. We believe that active citizen involvement in our programs makes a difference in our success. The work of volunteers at the local level helps us leverage our paid faculty and staff resources into a much greater impact for the people of Virginia.

There are many ways you can get involved with us. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss available opportunities.

Virginia Cooperative Extension has the goal of meeting the needs of local communities through county extension offices. Buckingham County Extension wants to hear from you! What are your interests and concerns? What type of programs would you be interested in attending? Do you have an expertise that you would like to share with the community? If so, contact our office at 434-969-4261 or stop by and talk with us at 54 Administration Lane, Buckingham Courthouse. You may also contact any of our Extension Leadership Council Members with comments, recommendations, and concerns.

Here are just a few ways you can be involved with Buckingham Extension and help meet the needs of our community:

Buckingham Extension Leadership Council (ELC)

The Buckingham ELC is made up of Extension Staff and local volunteers who work together to identify the needs of the citizens of Buckingham County and establish a plan of action to meet those needs. The ELC will monitor programming and determine what programs should be continued, discontinued, or revised. The council will strive to work with other county agencies to offer programming relevant to the citizens and eliminate duplication of programming. The Buckingham Extension Leadership Council meets quarterly at the Buckingham Extension Office. If you are interested in being a member of this council please contact the office at 434-969-4261 or stop in at 54 Administration Lane, Buckingham Courthouse.

4-H Volunteers

Buckingham 4-H is a strong resource for the young people of our county, but we can make it even better with your help. There are many ways that caring adults can help out. You can be involved for one afternoon, one week, or all year.

Because 4-H Youth Development is committed to helping create safe environments for young people to learn, have fun and develop socially, we work to ensure that the adults we entrust to work with young people only have the best interests of youth at heart
