Outreach and Training - Volunteer Training

NJ 4-H Volunteer Series

The New Jersey 4-H Leader Training Series is a wonderful resource for 4-H volunteers. It contains a wealth of information from how to start a club to planning field trips to how to work with youth. 

Code of Conduct

The New Jersey 4-H Code of Conduct sets the behavior expectation for all 4-H youth, their parents, and volunteers. Staff is responsible to enforce the Code to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants and preserve the integrity of the 4-H Youth Development program.Volunteers will be aware of the code of conduct expected of participants as related to behavior, preventing violations, and how to address behavior issues.

Protection of Minors

4-H and Rutgers University takes seriously its commitment to promoting a safe and welcoming environment for minors participating in 4-H programs and activities and other programs that occur as part of the program. Training of volunteers is required on the protection of minors, recognizing warning signs of abuse and neglect, the guidelines for working with minors, and reporting known or suspected abuse. Volunteers must be re-certified annually through an on-line training.
