    Keep youth safe – have emergency plans in place
    Planning in advance to be prepared for a variety of 4-H activities is an important key to keeping all participants safe. Utilize the “keeping youth safe” website for resources and information, and make sure to develop and have in place an emergency plan for all 4-H programs, activities and outings.
    Follow the medication policy and procedures
    4-H medication policy and procedures are designed to help keep all youth safe. Utilize the information sheet to understand the policy and how it works. Complete an authorization form before day or overnight activities occur when a parent/guardian is not present.
    Utilize Cloverbud policies and practices when planning programs
