* Please indicate your preference(s) for HOFNOD Volunteer Type:

  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.
