The training can be completed in person or via Zoom over the internet. A Zoom link will be sent out the day before the training. Please register so I will know how many packets to put together.

4-H Volunteers Background Screenings
As you may remember, the Washington State University 4-H Youth Development Program announced the initiation of a national criminal background screening process last year. In addition to those who are newly applying as a volunteer, we are beginning to conduct the same screens on our returning volunteers. Beginning this year, we will re-screen volunteers whose last name begins with A – K in even numbered years (2018, 2020, etc.), and L – Z in odd numbered years (2019, 2021, etc.)
WSU 4-H has selected Verified Volunteers™ as the vendor to conduct our background screens. This service is an online service and sends the results of your screening to both you and the county 4-H office. Your consent to conduct the screen is collected during the online process. When you have been notified, please complete this screen as soon as possible. Failure to complete the screen may result in your enrollment being suspended or not approved.
Feel free to contact our office with any questions. Thank you for your cooperation as we learn these new systems together!
