Volunteer Reporting
Why does it matter if I don't submit all of my volunteer hours? The reports are needed to record your volunteer and education hours  so you can maintain your Certified Master Gardener status. And just as important is the fact that Rutgers Cooperative Extension receives funding from the county based on the number of volunteer hours that we provide them with each year. The more volunteer hours (service) submitted, the greater the benefit to RCE. Please record your volunteer hours accurately and completely.

Emailable File This method uses an Excel form you save to your computer, then open to start using. You simply tab through the fields and enter your information, making this the easiest way to track your hours. It also saves you time, money, and is better for the environment, since there is no paper, stamp or envelope :)

Mail in Form If you prefer the paper method, simply open this file to print a form you can fill in and mail. Instructions for both reporting methods are contained in each file.
