Shooting Sports leaders need to be certified. The following is a list of all the 4-H Shooting Sports Leader Certification Trainings across the state.

The Gunnison Extension office will be hosting local volunteer workshops as part of the Western Region Leaders Forum. Join 4-H volunteers from across the western region and around the nation. Be inspired, share ideas, interact with many, diverse 4-H volunteers and staff, and receive resources from multiple states—to use in clubs now. Since club attendance always seems to be a challenge participation in the January sessions is encouraged. Any volunteer or parent is welcome to attend. Sessions will take place in the Multi-Purpose Building.

See ways that 4-H club meetings are the right environment to include the essential elements: belonging, mastery, generosity and independence.
