Colorado 4-H Volunteer Orientation
All volunteers must take the online Volunteer Orientation course!
New volunteers as well as returning volunteers who have not yet done so are required to take the Colorado 4-H Volunteer Orientation course, which is designed to help adults become familiar with Colorado 4-H Youth Development programs.
The course has four components:
- Lesson 1: Volunteer Roles & Relationships
- Lesson 2: A Safe & Inclusive Environment
- Lesson 3: Promoting Positive Youth Development
- Lesson 4: Introduction to Experiential Learning
The online course does not need to be completed in one sitting but the overall training will take approximately 1 hour to complete. All four components must be completed to continue/begin serving as a 4-H volunteer.
This training must be completed by December 31, 2019. Any volunteers who have not gone through this training by the end of the 4-H year (September 30, 2020) will not be able to re-enroll for the 2020-2021 4-H Program Year.
Instructions on how to complete the training can be found by clicking here.
