Nebraska 4-H has launched a new volunteer orientation. This online training serves as an introduction to the 4-H Youth Development program in Nebraska. As part of the screening process, the orientation covers various foundational and essential topics, including volunteer roles, 4-H operations, and risk management.
Any interested individuals including current and prospective volunteers, are welcome to complete the online orientation. However, all new volunteers working directly with youth, such as club leaders, project leaders, or workshop presenters, must complete the orientation. All volunteers will also be required to complete the training on a regular basis as part of the re-screening process.
The course includes six modules each with a video and knowledge check questions. The entire orientation takes approximately 45 minutes to complete and may be completed over multiple sessions. Upon successful completion, volunteers will receive a confirmation email and their county Extension office will be notified.
