Youth Safety at 4-H in Canada
Youth Safety Training for Leaders
“Youth Safety is an online workshop in partnership with 4-H Canada to ensure our leaders are familiar with the new Youth Safety at 4-H in Canada policies, and that they understand their role and specific responsibilities in delivering safe programming that meets youth industry best standards. ” A refresher course will need to be completed every 3 years to maintain Trained Leader eligibility.
This is mandatory training that all trained leaders, Youth Advisory Committee (YAC), 4-H Alberta Board Members and staff must complete as part of their onboarding process. It is optional for additional club and event volunteers. For more information on who needs to be trained visit the Youth Safety at 4-H in Canada.
