Volunteer Training Opportunities
Required Training for All Volunteers
- Mandated Reporter Training This training is designed to train our volunteers to recognize child abuse and neglect and enable them to know how to take the proper steps in reporting suspicions.
Everyone who suspects child abuse or neglect should call the Arkansas Child Abuse Hotline to make a report, but Mandated Reporters are required by law to do so.
Mandated Reporter training involves:
- A -training assessment (12 multiple-choice questions)
- 60-90 minutes of self-paced interactive training
- A post-training assessment (12 multiple-choice questions)
A copy of your completion certificate needs to be kept on file with your County Extension office.
- Orientation to 4-H -- Learn the history of 4-H, how to run 4-H club meeting, basics of positive youth development, and everything else you ever wanted to know about 4-H and were afraid to ask. This orientation manual is available to download or contact Hope Bragg (email@example.com) for more information.
- Risk Management/Youth Protection -- Formerly known as Chaperone Training, all 4-H volunteer leaders need to be familiar with youth protection and risk management associated with taking youth to 4-H events. Chaperone training is available at Arkansas 4-H On-Line
Additional Training for Volunteers
Coming in Fall of 2019 additional on-line trainings will be available for 4-H volunteers.
