Master Wellness Volunteers

The Master Wellness Volunteer training program, now in its ninth 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 the community. A certification exam on the final day of training assures that each proud volunteer has the tools and knowledge needed to represent Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. The training focuses on nutrition and dietary guidelines, food safety and healthy lifestyle choices and children’s health. The reasons Texans become Master Wellness Volunteers are as varied as the opportunities to volunteer.
