The University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension 4-H Volunteer application process includes a volunteer screening. All volunteers and staff who work directly with youth are required to complete the Youth Protection 4-H Volunteer Screening Form. Be assured the volunteer screening process is confidential.
Volunteer applicants are screened in order to:
- Assure a safe, positive and nurturing environment for all youth involved with the Nebraska 4-H Youth Development program.
- Provide protection for the child, the volunteer, the educator, the 4-H Council, the Extension Board, and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension.
Volunteer Screening is due to the Extension Office by February 15th. More information is available at http://4h.unl.edu/youthprotectionresources.
