The 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to become competent, caring and contributing citizens of the world. This is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of caring adults. The goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program are to: •Provide informal, educational programs for youth in grades K–13 (one year out of high school). •Encourage responsibility, community awareness and character development in youth. •Strengthen skills for adults working with youth through publications and training. •Improve community partnerships and collaborations.

Dear Volunteers,
You may have received an email from pom@ipo.rutgers.edu stating that you need to take your annual training.

• IF you took the Protection of Minors refresher training through your 4Honline account between Sept 2017-December 2017 YOU ARE UP-TO-DATE ON YOUR TRAINING. You do not need another protection of minors training until the fall of 2018. Thank you for completing this in a timely fashion!

• If you have not taken that training yet YOU MUST DO THAT NO LATER THAN FRIDAY JANUARY 12 through your 4Honline account. If you go through your 4honline account it is only a 15 minute refresher course. If you follow the instructions in the email from POM you will be taking the full 45 minute course.

• Failure to complete this refresher course by January 12 will result in suspension of your volunteer status.

We apologize for any confusion and are happy to work with you through this transition.

Thank you
Lisa and Carol
