The Kansas Volunteer Screening Process has undergone revisions beginning with the 2014-15 4-H Year. Please see the Volunteer Screening Flowchart for steps to complete the process. Orientation maybe done online if you have high speed Internet or Face to Face (contact office to schedule a time). Contact your local Extension office for more information.
Who must complete volunteer screening? A volunteer, adult or teen, with authority to independently plan and conduct educational experiences for youth with other adults present or in a public setting OR a volunteer whose position puts them in close, ongoing, one-to-one interaction with youth must complete the process. Volunteer roles include, but are not limited to, judging team coach, community leader, organizational leader, project leader, camp counselor, camp assistant, event chaperone, exchange trip chaperone, chauffeur for any 4-H activities, and county-wide project leader.
