Dear Students,

Hope this email finds you well. 4H Outreach at OSU is inviting you to help us as a volunteer during our Oregon Leadership Institute Part II taking place on March 6th through March 8th 2015. This is a great opportunity to come inspire and motivate students to pursue a higher education and learn leadership skills that will help you in your professional careers.  The institute will be held in Corvallis at OSU, and it starts on Friday (March 6th) at 5:30pm and ends on Sunday (March 8th) at 11am. However you don’t need to volunteer the entire three days, we would really appreciate it if you dedicate the time that your schedule allows you.

There are different tasks in which you can help us throughout the Institute such as mentor, student registration, campus tours, student panel, tabling, group leader, overnight dorm supervisor, workshops and have fun with amazing students.  Also, if you know of anyone that might be interested in volunteering for this event or being part of the student panel and share a glance of your major on Saturday from 8-9pm, let me know. We are in need of volunteers, and we would greatly appreciate the help!
