Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service expands the reach of its health and nutrition programs through Master Wellness Volunteers. Master Wellness Volunteers receive 40 hours of education related to health, nutrition, food safety, healthy food preparation, public speaking and much more. In return, volunteers are asked to give 40 hours of volunteer service to Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
The volunteer opportunities are diverse-giving presentations for local community groups, assisting with healthy cooking demonstrations, distributing information at health fairs, working with schools and after school programs and data entry. Previous health or wellness training is not required but an interest in living healthfully and helping others do the same is.
