All individuals volunteering with Nebraska 4-H must complete the Youth Protection 4-H Volunteer Screening process before volunteering or working with 4-H in any capacity. 4-H volunteers are also screened on a regular basis. Additionally, any volunteer chaperoning 4-H members during a 4-H overnight event or activity must also complete the We Protect Staff, Volunteers & Youth Nebraska Chaperone Training. Additional training materials are also available to help volunteers be successful in their roles.
Please note that certain volunteer roles within Nebraska 4-H require additional screening or training, including 4-H Shooting Sports Instructors/Leaders, FIRST Robotics volunteers, and 4-H Horsemanship Advancement Level Examiners.
