Screened Volunteer Benefits

If you are not yet an adult volunteer but are willing to share your time and talents to make a difference, 4-H needs you! The first step to becoming an adult 4-H volunteer is to complete the volunteer process. It is imperative that we get our adult volunteers screened, even if they are just helping with their own child at an event, to receive the benefits and protection by enrolling on 4-H Online.

There are many benefits for them to be enrolled, such as, keeping our youth safe knowing volunteers working with them are safe, Benton County purchased 4-H accident insurance coverage, U of M support in the event of accusations, U of M Purchased 4-H liability insurance coverage and access to 4-H online/membership data. If a screened volunteer gets injured during a 4-H event or at the fair, whether kicked by an animal or burned working in the lunch stand for example, there are options. There are a lot of perks to being a screened volunteer that you might not realize.
