Please indicate your preference(s) for HOFNOD Volunteer
HOFNOD FACILITATOR - Someone who is trained by NJDFW
staff to be a trainer of HOFNOD program Group Leaders and Support
Volunteers. Facilitators are trained in the use of HOFNOD and supplementary
conservation and aquatic education content. These individuals are
trained with the expectation they will provide HOFNOD training workshops
to Group Leaders and HOFNOD information and orientation sessions to
Support Volunteers. Facilitators will also serve as a liaison to Group
Leaders in their area who need assistance from Support Volunteers.
Facilitators not officially affiliated with, or employed by a qualified
organization must be a member of DFW's Wildlife Conservation Corps.
Facilitators may also deliver or oversee the delivery of the program
from beginning to end to their own group of youth.
GROUP LEADER - These individuals are typically teachers,
employees or official affiliates of a school, conservation, community
or faith based organization who deliver or oversee the delivery of
the program to a youth group from beginning to end. Group Leaders
receive HOFNOD training from NJDFW staff or a HOFNOD Facilitator and
may elect to receive additional training in the use of supplementary
conservation and aquatic education content. Group leaders are encouraged
to seek Support Volunteer assistance for certain classroom sessions
and fishing experiences.
SUPPORT VOLUNTEER - Someone who may not be interested
or able to take responsibility for guiding a group of children through
the entire HOFNOD program. These individuals have expertise in or
a willingness to teach or help with elements of the program, i.e.
conduct/assist with the fishing experience or lead a classroom session
on a special topic like aquatic ecology or conservation, fish biology,
fishing techniques, lures, fly tying, etc. Volunteers who have attended
a HOFNOD workshop require no further training. New volunteers must
attend a HOFNOD information and orientation session conducted by NJDFW
staff or a facilitator.
