Leadership Training Guides

The following Leadership Training Guides were developed by the University of Arkansas, Cooperative Extension Service for use in program planning with the Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council. These educational lessons were developed by subject matter experts in their respective areas of concentration.

Educational lessons are used with Arkansas Extension Homemakers in their club setting with a goal of increasing awareness, increasing knowledge, enhancing skills, and practical application. Generally, the lessons are taught by a leader within the club who received training on the topic.

Biennially, the leadership of the Arkansas Extension Homemakers selects a major and minor focus area for their program emphasis. The current Major Program emphasis for Extension Homemakers is Disaster Preparedness. A county may select four to six programs each year in these areas for monthly programs, i.e. 2014-2019. Training guides from the years 2005-2013 are also available on the Extension's T-Drive. For more information contact Melody Curtis, mcurtis@uaex.edu

The Minor Program emphasis is Pre-diabetes. A county may select two to four programs each year in these areas for monthly programs, i.e. 2014-2019. Training guides from the years 2005-2013 are also available on the Extension's T-Drive. For more information contact Melody Curtis, mcurtis@uaex.edu.  

 Each County Extension Homemakers Council plans monthly programs a year in advance on topics covering these two emphases.
