Training

for Leaders

Volunteer training and screening processes are designed to create and maintain a safe environment for all.

4-H Nova Scotia has a moral and legal responsibility to screen all volunteers to help protect members, volunteers and the organization as a whole. Our leaders also take training in Youth Safety and best practices.
Completing the Youth Safety and Commit to Kids trainings are requirements of being a 4-H trained leader.

Youth Safety Leader Training Sessions

This training is led by 4-H NS Staff and provides leaders with tools and information to implement industry standards for youth safety and how to provide support to members.

Commit to Kids Training

The Commit to Kids training has been developed by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection for organizations just like 4-H. It is designed to equip volunteers and staff with knowledge and skills to increase the personal safety of children and youth. 4-H joins a list of many other youth and sports organizations already using Commit to Kids training for their volunteers.
