Use the keeping youth safe Google site when planning 4-H activities

Summer is an exciting time of year for 4-H members filled with camps, shows and fairs. With so many activities happening it is very important for Minnesota 4-H volunteers and parents to consider potential risk and develop plans in advance to ensure the safety of all youth participating.  

Visit our keeping youth safe Google site for resources and tools to use when planning 4-H programs.

To help assess risk before programs occur, complete the risk management program planning tool.
Become familiar with the overall policies and practices covering topics such as: Supervision, scheduling, emergency planning and procedures, facilities, room and sleeping arrangements, transportation, food safety and insurance.
A series of information sheets provide more detailed information on topics including: Youth protection, responding to emergencies, animals, activities and outings, and project specific information.

These tools and resources can help to ensure safe and healthy environments for youth participating in 4-H programs. 

Work with your 4-H program coordinator for assistance in planning for risk.
