K-State Research and Extension


Volunteers are the lifeblood of any Cooperative Extension System program. They come to give a little of themselves to help others. What makes you a volunteer? Think about this:

It's not for the money,
It's not for the fame,
It's not for only personal gain,
It's just for love of fellow man,
It's just to lend a helping hand,
It's just to give a little of self,
That's something you can't buy with wealth,
It's not for medals worn with pride,
But it's the feeling deep inside,
It's that reward deep in your heart,
It's that feeling you've been a part,
Of helping others far and near,
That makes you a volunteer!
