The Gloucester County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is your local connection to Virginia's land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University.
Through educational programs based on research and developed with input from local stakeholders, we help the people of Gloucester County improve their lives.
We provide education through programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development, and Community Viability.
Are you between the ages of 13 and 16, love history and want to explore volunteer possibilities as a costumed historical interpreter?
Become a 4-H Peer Teacher at Jamestown Settlement or the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Learn to be a costumed historical interpreter and join the volunteer youth crew. Teens from Gloucester, York/Poquoson and James City are eligible to participate in this program.
Selected youth will spend five days training alongside a costumed interpreter to master one station within their site (it could be knots for example on the ships). Upon completion of the training sessions and successful mastery of the station, youth may be asked to continue volunteering for the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation as a costumed interpreter. For additional information contact Krista Gustafson, 4-H Agent, Gloucester County at Kgustaf@vt.edu or 804-693-2602.
