Put the Child First Registration

WSU Extension remains committed in its efforts to prevent the abuse and exploitation of children and vulnerable adults.  In our continuing efforts to assure a safe environment for all program participants, Washington State University Extension is requiring child protection training for all faculty, staff, and volunteers working with youth and vulnerable adults.

This 20-minute presentation may be viewed at any time at your home or Extension office computer.  Additionally your county may choose to host group training and discussion opportunities at an event or training.  Your registration for the training will be kept in the system as proof of your participation.

We appreciate your compliance with this requirement.  For more information, contact your 4-H staff.

4-H members are helped by adult volunteer leaders. Every 4-H club has one or more adult leaders.

These volunteer leaders:

  • Help teach boys and girls.
  • Help organize the club.
  • Help officers and assist at meetings.
  • Inform parents about 4-H.

There are different kinds of 4-H leaders:

  • General Club Leader: The main club leader and organizer who works with general club meetings.
  • Project Leader: Works with members on their specific project work.
  • Activity Leader: Responsible for one or more activities. Some examples are recreation, record keeping, public presentations or community service activities.
  • Teen Leader: Works under the guidance of an adult. Helps with activities and events or helps members with their project work.

4-H Volunteers are valued by WSU Extension and the 4-H Youth Development Program. 4-H volunteers and extension staff work together as a team.
